This was Paul Robeson's last movie because he was disgusted with the stereotypical caricature of African - Americans. He hoped this film would be a realistic view of poor sharecroppers, but it was not. Note the idea of shared use of land, in effect, a Communist collective. This concept was inserted by Robeson, who was a follower of Communism. He was later blacklisted for his beliefs.
