Trivia

The role of "Uncle Tom" was originally given to Charles Gilpin, but when Universal executives saw the first few days' dailies, they objected to Gilpin's "aggressive" performance and demanded that he be replaced. Character actor James B. Lowe auditioned for the part, gave a more "acceptable" reading and was awarded the role. See more »

Excellent Film
14 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just saw this movie on Turner Classic Movies last night. One of the BEST films I've ever seen! I laughed. I cried. I got angry. And I LOVED the ending. I loved the way the film was done, especially with the angel scene and the ghost. The locations were amazing and the actors and actresses were outstanding. I had no idea that slavery included the sale of white people as well. Little Eva's love for the slaves was so beautiful. She really moved me and when she died, I cried right along with Topsy. I cried when Tom was separated from his family and when the lead actress discovered her mother. I loved it when the army came to free all of the slaves and could feel the celebration coming through my television set. I truly wish that anyone and everyone who reads my words will have the opportunity to see this movie. I truly do think it's one of the best movies ever. A MUST see movie! Excellent!
