Special Presentation of “The Incident.”

September 26, 2011

Another youth has killed himself because of bullying.  Toppie is presenting a special audio version of the 1967 movie called “The incident.”  It’s dark and powerful.  Adults are forgetting what it was like to be bullied from the perspective of a youth.  This movie will remind them.  Toppie believes the movie should be required viewing for teachers, administrators and parents.  Maybe even students.

Director: Larry Peerce.  Writer: Nicholas E. Baehr.  CAST:  Victor Arnold, Robert Bannard, Beau Bridges, Ruby Dee,  Robert Fields, Jack Gilford, Mike Kellin, Ed McMahon, Gary Merrill, Donna Mills, Tony Musante, Brock Peters, Thelma Ritter, Martin Sheen, Jan Sterling, and Diana Van der Vlis.
