  • Gerald Mayer proved once more that he had talent above and beyond being the nephew of MGM head Louis B. Mayer with his direction of THE SELLOUT. The story begins with a bang, as big-city newspaper editor Haven Allridge (Walter Pidgeon) falls victim to the small-town tyranny of corrupt sheriff Kellwin C. Burke (Thomas Gomez). Poised to launch an investigation of Burke's underhanded activities, Allridge is suddenly intimidated into silence. Crusading state's attorney Chick Johnson (John Hodiak) discovers that Burke is keeping Allridge quiet by threatening to reveal the criminal activities of Allridge's son-in-law, Randy Stanton (Cameron Mitchell). The final reels illustrate the thesis of Edmund Burke that evil will triumph so long as good men do nothing--except that this time, they do something. Though hardly a big-budget effort, THE SELLOUT boasts an unusually strong cast, including the aforementioned actors, as well as Karl Malden and Everett Sloane.
