Paul Robeson: Portraits of [DVD] 71551502172 Movies

All-American athlete, scholar, renowned baritone, stage actor, and social activist, Paul Robeson (1898-1976) was a towering figure and a trailblazer many times over. He was perhaps most groundbreaking, however, in the medium of film. The son of an escaped slave, Robeson managed to become a top-billed movie star during the time of Jim Crow America, headlining everything from fellow pioneer Oscar Micheaux's silent drama "Body And Soul" to British studio showcases to socially engaged documentaries, always striving to project positive images of black characters. Increasingly politically minded, Robeson eventually left movies behind, using his international celebrity to speak for those denied their civil liberties around the world and ultimately becoming a victim of ideological persecution himself. But his film legacy lives on and continues to speak eloquently of the long and difficult journey of a courageous and outspoken African America. Includes: "The Emperor Jones" (1933), "Paul Robeson: Tribute To An Artist" (1979), "Body And Soul" (1925), "Borderline" (1930), "Sanders Of The River" (1935), "Jericho" (1937), "The Proud Valley" (1940), and "Native Land" (1942).

New digital transfers, created from the best surviving elements, Audio commentaries by historians Jeffrey C. Stewart (The Emperor Jones) and Pearl Bowser (Body and Soul), Musical scores by Wycliffe Gordon (Body and Soul) and Courtney Pine (Borderline), Pacifica Radio interview with Paul Robeson from 1958, Four new video programs, featuring actors Ruby Dee and James Earl Jones, filmmaker William Greaves, cinematographer Tom Hurwitz, Paul Robeson Jr., and film historians Ian Christie and Stephen Bourne, and including clips from throughout Robeson's film career, A book featuring essays by Paul Robeson, Hilton Als, Charles Burnett, Ian Christie, Geraldyn Dismond, Charles Musser, Clement Alexander Price, and Deborah Willis and a note from Pete Seeger.

Presented in Black & White.
