Seven Angry Men Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In Seven Angry Men, [[Performer~P46298~Raymond Massey~raymondmassey]] stars as controversial 19th-century abolitionist John Brown, a role he'd previously essayed in 1940's [[Feature~V42843~Santa Fe Trail~santafetrail]]. Without glossing over Brown's murderous fanaticism and cold-bloodedness, the film manages to invoke a degree of sympathy for the man, whose intentions were honorable even if his methods were not. After cutting a bloody swath through Kansas, Brown and his followers hole up in a warehouse at Harper's Ferry, Virginia, where he meets his own personal Waterloo at the hands of federal troops. The romantic subplot is handled by [[Performer~P34017~Jeffrey Hunter~jeffreyhunter]], cast as Brown's son Owen, and [[Performer~P54690~Debra Paget~debrapaget]] as Owen's sweetheart Elizabeth. [[Performer~P21250~James Edwards~jamesedwards]] offers another strong characterization as an articulate freed slave who follows John Brown to his doom. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
