Hurry Sundown was number one at the Box Office on February 19, 1967. The only notable thing about the movie is the music score by Hugo Montenegro.
"Otto Preminger's "Hurry Sundown" is a frustrating case, not good but not particularly bad, with a smokescreen of controversy surrounding it and obscuring its real faults. The trouble with this film (sanctimonious bleats from Newsweek and Bosley Crowther notwithstanding) is not that it's racist and tasteless, but that it's naive and dull."-Roger Ebert
