Emperor Jones movie Haughty and volatile, a Pullman porter's fiery disposition loses him his job and lands him in jail. While on the chain gang, he kills a white guard and escapes, retreating to Haiti where he overthrows the monarch and crowns himself Emperor Jones.

A Lost Work
Surprisingly effective. The screenplay goes into the past and exceeds O'Neill's play. Although rudimentary in film technique (it early 1930's) this is a masterful work.

AMAZING GEM
Emperor Jones review The first American film to ever feature a black man in such a powerful leading role. Robeson's real life was almost as tumultuous, as he was later invovled with the Communist party of the US, blacklisted and terrorized by J. Edgar Hoover's FBI. A truly talented man who stood at the forefront of the civil rights movement well before the 1960's. The film is phenomenal, even with it's 1930's ham handed style of acting. Love this film!
