The producer and original director Burt Kennedy had creative differences. The producer then fired him and replaced him with Steve Carver. It was the only time Kennedy was ever fired from a movie. Most of the footage on the screen is his. See more »
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 »
Blaise, you been foolin' with Miss Sophie?
Is that what she say? 'Cause I don't know what you mean.

Ha ha ha ha .....this movie was out there. Okay i'm a 31 year black male and a movie buff.I like movies good and bad, but a really love campy movies. Drum is now my favorite movie on all time!!!! The acting was terrible, the direction was worst,but i loved it!!! The plantation owner and his slutty daughter were the most outrageous characters in the entire movie...i love slavery movies or any movie set in the antibellum south..i saw mandingo and loved it!!!...i didn't even know drum existed until i saw it on late night cable tv. It was explicit,funny and probaly insulted half the viewing population! It was WILD and most of all POLITICALLY INCORRECT..WHICH IS WHAT FILMMAKING SHOULD BE!!!!!Most black people who watch this movie will probally laugh there ass off, I did! Those people who were offended, cool out. Its just really a fun movie.
