What are people saying?

  • Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Uncle Tom's Cabin

    What makes the film outstanding are the introduction of the story (with shots of present day New York and off-screen commentary by Jeffery Hunter) and end song by Eartha Kitt (on screen) with the end credits. Many versions of the film edit those out. It is an European film on an American subject with a carefully picked cast. And what a brilliant use of songs by the Hungarian director.
