"The 'Greatest' in his greatest role to date" "Highly charged, emotional drama" A devastating struggle for freedom"
A dramatic story of racial tensions in the deep South at the end of the American Civil War when the Klu Lux Klan was formed to prevent black slaves from taking their rightful place in the new society and the slaves were forced to fight back to hold onto their newly-won freedoms.
A deeply felt, compassionate film of epic quality starring Muhammad Ali as a black slave who learns to read and write and rises to U.S. Senator for South Carolina and Kris Kristofferson as the white sharecropper who joins the blacks in their desperate fight against the nightriders.
Superior video entertainment directed by Jan Kadar from a screenplay by David Zelag Goodman which in turn was adapted from the famous novel of Howard Fast.
