Worthwhile Yet Rarely Seen Version Of The Broadway Musical
Alan Paton's novel CRY THE BELOVED COUNTRY made for a dramatic musical with a score by Kurt Weill. American Film Theater's adaption of it contains excellent performances by Brock Peters, Clifton Davis, Melba Davis, Paula Kelly (her musical number is one of the film's highlights) and Raymond St. Jacques, but sadly is rarely seen. The movie itself is a little slow, but the score is beautifully rendered by the cast, and contains the heart of Paton's story.
