The Incident hits hard.
Adapted from an excellent Playhouse 90 production, it retells
the storyof 12 people trapped and terrorized by a pair of punks
on a New York subway. The people endure indignities and vio-
lence, and turn on .each other rather than on the hoods. They
are their own victims.
The story is a modern American classic. It exposes all the
materialism, apathy and dehumanization described in sociology
texts. But it strikes home because it exposes all these festering
sores in a subway that won't stop until everyone has been injured
and no one cured.
Despite severe and varied shortcomings, the film succeeds,
mainly because of the brilliant acting. Director Larry Peerce
uses a cast of relative unknowns, faces from the street, whose;
terror' is instantly despicable, understandable and ours.
Unfortunately, the film begins tediously. We watch the hoods
(Tony Musante and Martin Sheen) closing a pool room, boozing
and jumping an innocent New Yorker.
Switch to a husband (Ed McMahon) telling his wife they
must return to Flushing on the subway, even though it is 2 a.m.
After all, McMahon is a worrying, working man, who isn't made
of money. Switch to a wife (Thelma Ritter) and a husband
(Jack Gilford), who are deploring the younger generation. Switchj
to the younger generation, a couple making out. Switch to a posh'
Manhattan party where a wife (Jan Sterling) and her frigid mate
get ideas about money. Switch to a Negro social' worker (Ruby
Dee) who wants peace and her husband (Brock Peters) who
wants violence, etc.'
The switching camera is really not effective until it bounces
and swings around the subway car, as the acrobatic hoods make
their grotesque, comic entrance. In these tight surroundings, the
camera swallows fearful faces, ironic ads for a New York summer
festival and Clairol.
But eventually, the car reaches Grand Central Station and
safety. A voice croons "Is it over, has it ended this way." and
the flim has fallen to preaching. But it has a lot to say.

"'THE INCIDENT' hits home with express
train impact . . . builds the tension to an
almost unbearable pitch."
-Kathleen CarrolL, Daily News
"A powerful film that drives relentlessly deep.
It's a shocking experience. 'The Incident is
brought vividly to life by Larry Peerce, the
director who tackled race relations so
daringly in One Potato, Two Potato.'
The acting is splendid . . . the, action holds
your interest throughout. Tony Musante and
Martin Sheen make the hoods
terrifyingly real."
-Frances Herridge, New York Post
