YMMV / Bad Day at Black Rock

  • Adaptation Displacement: Not many people know it was based on a short story.
  • Complete Monster: Reno Smith, who murdered an innocent Japanese-American out of racism and jealousy, and is willing to do anything, even kill Macreedy and others, in order to keep this secret buried.
