Uncle Tom's Cabin

Uncle Tom's Cabin

Director: Harry Pollard
Year: 1927

Seen today, the sincerity of director Harry Pollard's handsomely produced 1927 drama outweigh the conventions of its story. All told, this "lost" production remains a fascinating cinematic bridge between the 19th century barnstorming theatrical tradition and the new freedom of the feature film... as well as a cultural bridge between African-American and white popular entertainments.
