Storyline

A young, idealistic man returns home to the plantation where he grew up in servitude. With him, he brings his fiance, Lutiebelle, in hopes of convincing the plantation owner that she is really his cousin in order to secure the family inheritance. To aid in the comic complications that follow are his family members Missy and Gitlow, and the plantation owners endearing (but ineffectual) son Charlie.

Well acted low budget stage adaptation
19 March 2000 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Purlie Victorious ( AKA Gone Are the Days) is a stage bound film version of the popular play, written by star Ossie Davis and featuring his spouse Ruby Dee, the always hilarious Godfrey Cambridge, and a young Alan Alda. It shows its years and betrays an obvious low to non-existent budget but is a showcase for its cast, which also includes a ripe turn from Sorrell Booke as a died in the wool Ol' Suthun Genelman.
