I REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I EVER SAW THIS FILM,I WAS GLUED TO MY SEAT AND DID NOT WANT TO MOVE,LOU GOSSETT JR PLAYS A STRONG PART,AND HE PLAYS IT BRILLIANTLY.
I LOVE TO WATCH FILMS LIKE THESE,WHERE PEOPLE ARE OUT TO GET TO THE TRUTH,WHEN SOMEONE HAS BEEN PUNISHED FOR SOMETHING THEY HAVE NOT DONE.I COULD WATCH THIS FILM OVER AND OVER AGAIN,WITHOUT GETTING BORED WITH IT.

I had heard about George Stinney who was the youngest boy to be executed in the 20th century. It is a very sad but true story which also illustrates the indifferences in colour and wealth in America during the early 1900s. A film worthy of the award it received!

QUIETLY POWERFUL FILM 24 May 2005
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Made for TV back in 1991, CAROLINA SKELETONS is based on the book by David Stout, and inspired by a true story. Set in the 1960's South, the story focuses on the execution of a 14 year old African-American lad who supposedly brutally slaughtered two little girls. Thirty years later, the boy's brother, now a colonel in the Green Berets, has come home to visit his dying mother who asks him to find out who really killed the girls. While the movie has its share of cliches and stereotypes, it nonetheless has some powerful and tragic scenes. The execution of the little boy in itself is terrifying, but even more so is the sheriff's insistence that his own son (a closet friend of the condemned) witness the execution is ghastly. Lou Gossett Jr. brings a stoic strength in his role as the Green Beret, whose search for the truth uncovers those Carolina Skeletons. Bruce Dern is very good as the sheriff, who is the little boy forced to witness the execution; he too wants to find out from his now institutionalized father, what really transpired. Melissa Leo gives an effective performance as Dern's daughter who aids Gossett in his quest for the truth, and Richard Jenkins is vile as a good old boy out to stop Gossett from finding the truth. No special effects, no intense action sequences, CAROLINA SKELETONS brings home the sad truth of a country riddled with hate, and is tragic in its exposition of such truth.

Learn from History 29 Jan. 2000
By Neil Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Louis Gossett, Jr. is the star of Carolina Skeletons and gives his usual excellent performance as a man returning to his small South Carolina town in 1964 who is asked by his dying mother to prove that his older brother executed thirty years previous was wrongly accused. Carolina Skeletons is a made-for-television movie that is somewhat lacking in some of the production values of more expensively produced films. It has several scenes that come to a dramatic climax and then fade to black. I found myself expecting commercials. The movie is worthy of attention because it reminds us of the unjust treatment of African Americans in our country - especially in the South. As citizens, we must always be aware of injustice in order that it be identified and vanquished.

Good tv movie about horrific crime committed against George Stinney 12 Sept. 2013
By Rochelle Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I thought the movie was good considering it was a made for tv movie, but when I read the actual account of what happened to George Stinney, I realized the movie didn't "go there" like it could have, and should have. They should have shown how 14 year old George's family was run out of town, leaving this young boy all alone to face the naked hatred and racism of an entire town. Instead they focused more on Louis Gossett Jr's character and his determination to find evidence that would posthumously exonerate his brother. I realize the movie is based on George Stinney's execution with the names changed and some aspects fictionalized, but I still felt they did a disservice to the true life story by glossing over certain events. Despite the short-comings, it was a good movie with great performances all around especially for the young man who played the central character.

Great acting 17 Sept. 2013
By Kathleen Bristol - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie is based on a true story. Of the Youngest Person ever executed in the U.S. I Think it was a great movie, with great acting. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, is I feel that it left out a lot of the actual facts about the history. In other words, it was more for entertainment than for anything educational. Great movie, Just be sure to read the book as well. (If you are interested in the actual Story of the 14 yr. old boy who was executed.
