Description: Featuring an all-black cast and moving the tales from the
promised land to the Deep South, this landmark film retells some of the
Old Testament's best-known stories as visualized in rural black children's
imaginations. Rex Ingram's tour-de-force performance in three roles (De Lawd,
Adam, and Hezdrel) dominates the movie, while Eddie 'Rochester' Anderson plays
a laid-back ferryboat skipper (Noah) who argues with 'De Lawd' about bringing
liquor along on the ark.
