"Skokie was a television movie that I had strong memories about even after all these years.
It was interesting to see how I had changed because, obviously, the movie did not.
For anyone who is interested in the subject matter, I respectfully suggest purchasing a different movie. For those interested in an excellent dramatic performance by Danny Kaye, go ahead and buy it: for that, it is worth it.
My problem with the movie is that it presents all sides as if each are equally valid. When it comes to Nazis and those who represent them as well as those who stand their ground and protest them as violators of the 1st Amendment (i.e., this is NOT freedom of speech; it is an incitement to riot!); this movie bends over backward to justify the 'righteousness' of neo-Nazi/Nazi behavior and I find that reprehensible.
I am very glad I purchased it, however, because it shows me how I have evolved since first watching it on television all those years ago. So, you might also find it interesting to shed light on how your views/opinions have evolved or remained stagnant in the last couple of decades."

"After looking forward sometime to viewing this film, I am sad to report that the film is far too fragmented. What could have been a very thought provoking movie, turned out to be a failure.
The acting was very wooden in parts, only Kaye rose above the average school of players.
The subject matter could have been alot more hard hitting, for if this was based on fact, it was far to limp.
