This was Burt Lancaster's final performance. On 30 November 1990, shortly after filming ended, he suffered a massive stroke and remained incapacitated for the final four years of his life. See more »
When Thurgood sits down to dinner with Buster after she spent the day "running errands", he uses his fork and knife in the British/Bahamian manner, rather than how a native-raised American would use them. See more »
Sidney Poitier was the perfect actor to play Thurgood Marshall as an attorney for the NAACP in the fifties. Burt Lancaster gives a final performance but one of his best as legal legend, John W. Davis. The supporting cast is excellent. This mini series is about the legal process that can be long, tedious, and time consuming for years. This case starts off when a small town African American minister, teacher, and principal seeks a school bus for his students. When the superintendent blows off the request, the minister goes forward and seeks counsel. The minister and the plaintiffs experience hostility, threats, violence, and more hatred. This film has to be shown in schools to understand American history, a shameful chapter in history.
