UNCLE TOM'S CABIN (1927) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Virginia Grey, James Lowe, George Siegmann, Margarita Fisher
Directed By:  Harry Pollard

Conceived as a super production on the scale of Foolish Wives and The Phantom of the Opera, this 1927 adaptation of Stowe's famous book cost $1.8 million and took two years to film. Seen today, the sincerity of director Harry Pollard's handsomely produced 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.

2K restoration of the original 1927 release with Movietone score by Ernö Rapée
