Earl Jones is superb as Paul Robeson
26 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This play gives an insight into the man. Never perfect but always head and shoulders above others. Paul Robeson is in my opinion one of the greatest Americans of all time and this play gives an inkling of his greatness.

Earl Jones gives a faultless performance as the great man.

I was at a transatlantic concert given by Paul Robeson over a telephone link in 1953 or 1954 at St Pancras Town Hall in London. This was at a time when Paul could not work or get out of America as his passport had been taken away. This play reminded me of the struggles of Paul Robeson.
