Uncle Tom's Cabin

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Starring: Herbert Lom


Uncle Tom, Sambo, Simon Legree: their names are American bywords, and all of them are characters in this acclaimed film version of Harriet Beecher Stowe's remarkable novel of the pre-Civil War South.

Watching this film for the first time may be a startling experience. Uncle Tom's Cabin is unforgettable in its presentation of the peace loving Tom forced to submit to his sadistic master, the evil Simon Legree. Helpless slaves - raped, tortured, and humiliated - are eventually driven to rebel against their wicked oppressors, Uncle Tom's Cabin accurately depicts the attitudes of white nineteenth century Americans toward the institution of slavery and dramatizes, in heart breaking detail, the tragic breakup of black Kentucky families sold "down the river."

In the epic tradition of Gone With The Wind and Roots, this grand scale production of Uncle Tom's Cabin is a brutal, passionate indictment of American slavery and the explosive racial hatred that spawned it - hatred that continues to this day.
