Malcolm X's favourite film and one of ours too! Grab a copy of this wicked early 60s film made in the US with an all Motown soundtrack - one of the first black dramatic films made in the US in the 1960s.
Reflecting the era of the civil rights movement during the early 1960s, the story, set in Alabama, follows the trials of railroad worker Duff (Ivan Dixon - who would later direct 'The Spook who Came to the Door') who falls in love with, and marries, preacher's daughter Josie (singer Abbey Lincoln). Trying to settle down to life in the town, Duff soon comes face-to-face with the ingrained racial hostility of his bosses, and is forced to come to terms with the lack of respect and dignity afforded him by the town's population.
This is an amazing film!
The original soundtrack features Motown stars Stevie Wonder, Mary Wells, The Vandellas, The Miracles and The Marvelettes!
