Based on the popular Broadway play, "Purlie Victorious is the story of a black preacher, who returns home to rural Georgia to claim an inheritance and bring down Ol' Cap'n Stonewall Jackson Cotchipee, the ruthless plantation owner that he once served. Accompanying Purlie is Miss Lutiebelle Jenkins (Ruby Dee), a pretty young girl who has captured his heart. Purlie persuades her to convince Cotchipee that she is the long-lost relative entitled to the family inheritance. But, the plot goes awry and Purlie must hide to escape the old man's wrath. While played with comedic effect, "Purlie Victorious" reflects the powerful themes of the civil rights movement in the 1960s.
