Uncle Tom's Cabin 1927



Photoplay originally reviewed this production as a straight "super-feature" in its January, 1928, issue, stating this was not the "Uncle Tom's Cabin" we all knew, but a bigger and buncombe version of the love affair of Eliza and George Harris, slaves. Now Universal has had "Uncle Tom" Movietoned to its vast advantage. No dialogue is spoken, save Aunt Ophelia's constant cry for Topsy, but the musical setting by Erno Rapee is music, not mere melodious noise. A sound picture really worth hearing.
