Uncle Tom's Cabin (Blu-ray)
Directed by Harry Pollard
Conceived as a super production on the scale of Foolish Wives and The Phantom of the Opera, this 1927 adaptation of Stowe's famous book cost $1.8 million and took two years to film. Seen today, the sincerity of director Harry Pollard's handsomely produced drama outweigh the conventions of its story. All told, this "lost" production remains a fascinating cinematic bridge between the 19th century barnstorming theatrical tradition and the new freedom of the feature film... as well as a cultural bridge between African-American and white popular entertainments.

2K restoration of the original 1927 release with Movietone score by Ernö Rapée / Complete 1958 re-issue version, introduced and narrated by Raymond Massey / Audio commentary by historian Edward J. Blum / Essay by film historian David Pierce / New 2K restoration of the 1914 World Film version, starring Sam Lucas, preserved by the Library of Congress, music by Andrew Earle Simpson / New 2K restoration of the 1910 Vitagraph version, directed by J.
