This is what a TV movie should be...

This is what a TV movie should be...

Uncle Tom's Cabin has a good story, it has a message that still resonates, and it has good actors.

In truth the story has been chopped up and glued back together. I'm sure that there are better version out there, but for a TV movie this is one worth seeing.

Basically, this is one of those 1980's TV movies that for the most part has been forgotten (along with a majority of the decade's movies). If you can find a copy for cheap I'd recommend adding it to your collection.
