(1968, DCP, 104m) w/Raymond St. Jacques, Ruby Dee, Frank Silvera, Julian Mayfield. Dassin’s remake of John Ford’s The Informer (1935) updates the story to the months immediately after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In it, a group of black radicals planning a violent revolution are betrayed by someone in their own ranks. Marking Dassin’s return to the U.S., Uptight is a ferocious look at the country that exiled him.
