Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews A failed film. Rated: C May 6, 2016 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Band of Angels is pleasing in spite of its antiquated themes, and it’s an interesting addition to any film buff’s collection. Apr 23, 2014 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Raoul Walsh directed this entertaining melodrama, starring Clark Gable and Yvonne De Carlo, whih stirred some controversy at the time due to the interracial love story Rated: B- Jan 2, 2011 Full Review Michael E. Grost Classic Film and Television Brilliant Civil War era drama about the evils of slavery, made with all of Raoul Walsh's visual creativity. Jul 17, 2009 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...an outdated, relentlessly irrelevant piece of work. Rated: 1/4 Feb 14, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

Steve D Solid because it really doesn't pull its punches. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/06/23 Full Review Audience Member this movie had a hollywood/non hollywood ending and i don't want to give it away. it was better than most civil war movies of that era, which were usually slanted to sympathize with the traitors to the u.s.a. this one leaned a little that way when they showed union troops hanging plantation owners, which was diametrically opposite general grant's orders. i liked this movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic movie !!!!!! The magic that appears on screen is sooooo wonderful!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Another civil war film for Clark Gable to get his teeth into, although Yvonne De Carlo undertakes most of the emotional parts. It's a pretty good effort centring around the final years of the slave trade in America, although there's a Hollywood righteousness about the whole production that puts slightly more effort into a happy conclusion than the issues themselves - although this was pretty normal for this period in cinema. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best movies ever! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Gable, de Carlo, & Poitier. Wow. A tale of slavery and prejudice which will challenge any notions the viewer may hold. The truth is only as simple as we choose choose to perceive it. Worth watching more than once.
