A beautiful 1958 movie theatre advertising poster for the re-release off the 1927 classic 'Uncle Tom's Cabin', based on Harriet Beecher Stowe's 1852 novel.
"Uncle Tom's Cabin (1927) is a silent film directed by Harry A. Pollard and released by Universal Pictures. The film is based on the 1852 novel Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriett Beecher Stowe and was the last silent film version. A copy is preserved at the Library of Congress.
In this version of the film, all of the major slave roles, with the exception of Uncle Tom himself, were portrayed by white actors. Actress Mona Ray played the slave Topsy in blackface, while the slaves Eliza, George, Cassie and Harry were all presented as having very light skin coloring because of mixed-race heritage. This film was released on DVD in 1999 by Kino.
The title role was originally played by the notable stage actor Charles Gilpin but he quit amid onset dissatisfaction with the depiction of the role and was replaced by James B. Lowe, reshooting the sections already filmed with Gilpin.
The film was rereleased in 1958 with sound added and narration by Raymond Massey."
