| Incredible Film
Not only have I never seen this movie, I never knew this film even existed. This movie deserves better than a forgotten title in a pile of celluloid. It is an important movie and should be seen.

Roger Moseby gives a great performance. Gordon Park's direction is flawless, weaving the music of Leadbelly to introduce and exit scenes. The pictures Parks created are stunning. I cannot believe it took me 45 years to discover this film. .
