The Sellout
In this socially conscious newspaper drama, an idealistic newspaper editor tries to launch a public crusade against the corrupt sheriff who has been terrorizing the town. The editor ends up kidnapped, but fortunately, the states attorney continues with the cause. The sheriff is brought to trial, but as none of the witnesses are willing to speak against him, it looks like he will be acquitted. Even the recently returned editor refuses to testify. He remains silent because his son-in-law is involved in the evil doings. Fortunately, by the story's end, justice prevails.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Its tale of corruption and intimidation by the law enforcers is old news."
