Milos Forman – Ragtime (1981)

A well-to-do New Rochelle family is split when it takes in a homeless black woman (Debbie Allen) and her child; all initially looks well when her estranged boyfriend, Coalhouse Walker Jr. (Howard E. Rollins Jr.) reappears with a good job and an offer of marriage. The ‘younger brother’ of the family (Brad Dourif) falls in love with the notorious playgirl Evelyn Nesbit (Elizabeth McGovern) as she awaits the outcome of her husband Harry Thaw’s murder trial – Thaw killed famous architect Stanford White (Norman Mailer) out of jealousy.Coalhouse is returning to the city in his new Model T when he’s harassed and humiliated by a team of volunteer firemen led by Irish-American lout Willie Conklin (Kenneth McMillan), and a dreadful series of events stemming from Walker’s refusal to swallow his pride escalates into a violent debacle. Police Commissioner Rheinlander Waldo (James Cagney) has to step in to restore order when Coalhouse and his gang use force to take over a J.P.Morgan library.
