Trivia

Producer Aldo von Pinelli first announced Louis Armstrong to be playing the part of Uncle Tom, but the failing health of the singer and actor made this impossible. Simon Legree was first offered to Mario Adorf and Gert Fröbe, before Herbert Lom took over the part. Other roles were intended to be played by Harry Belafonte, Ella Fitzgerald and Omar Sharif, but none of them actually participated in this movie. See more »

Who's house?
8 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

"Run's house" if you have listen to some old RUN DMC classic hit. But in this case it's Uncle Tom's house ... although it's also not quite his, him being a slave and all ...

But let's rewind and start off with the fact, that this is based on the very popular novel. That it is a European production and that I can't tell how true to it's source material it is. My feeling says, that's it's not going "by the book". But it's only a feeling. What I can say for certain, is that I had mixed feelings, watching this movie and even afterwards. I'm pretty sure that was intended, but it still got to me. And unfortunately it's not that this feeling makes me view the movie with better eyes. Even if you haven't read the book, the title should ring some bell and if you like the ring of it, than watch it, it's worth-while, though not a classic.
