The film opens 20 years before the 1860 presidential election, 1840, and states that the slave trade was, "perfectly legal." Trading in slaves from Africa was outlawed in the United States in 1808. See more »
Overall this is a fair film. Maybe not fair to history or the actors. Ken Norton asking Yaphet Kotto if he had let Sophie touch his snake was very amusing. The use of N word has to be at least a hundred times. I found the film to be in bad taste and not for any purpose other than to exploit. At the end Warren Oates makes a statement that sums up the whole film. He says that slaves are unpredictable sometimes, just like some kind of mad critter. ** out of *****
