Footage from police shooting shows threat to kids, decision to use lethal force


Blackboard Jungle (1955) Glenn Ford is the idealist teacher who mixes it up with smirking tough kids in this genre-shaping classic that helped launch rock 'n' roll with its dangerous soundtrack (yes, somehow Bill Haley was once an edgy threat to America's youth), but a smoldering Sidney Poitier steals the movie as the leader of the toughs. Vic Morrow, then 26, made his screen debut trying to look a decade younger. Also in the class: Paul Mazursky, Anne Francis and Jameel Farah, who later changed his name to Jamie Farr and was shipped off to sitcom Korea to wear a dress.
