A School for Pompey Walker by Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson, Michael J. Rosen and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at The View from Pompey's Head () has nothing to do with Mount Vesuvius, but is instead a slice of Southern Americana touching upon racism, class prejudice and adultery. Richard Egan plays a lawyer who returns to his hometown to sort out a racially oriented mystery and finds himself reunited with an old flame, played by Dana Wynter.

Miscegenation, that old reliable bugaboo of many a Southern-based novel, is at the center of Hamilton Basso's The View from Pompey's Head. The film version stars Richard Egan as a New York lawyer who returns to his Southern home town to investigate an embezzlement charge. THE VIEW FROM POMPEY’S HEAD is a term used for social prejudice in a small town in the American South. The film starred Richard Egan, Dana Wynter, Cameron Mitchell, and Sidney Blackmec. Bernstein’s score provides a perfect background to the drama. .
