Synopsis
In this two-part, four-hour miniseries based on Howard Fast's 1944 novel about an ex-slave who is elected to the U.S. Senate while battling other former slaves and white sharecroppers to keep the land they tended all their lives, Muhammad Ali and Kris Kristofferson, as former slave and soldier Gideon Jackson and sharecropper Abner Lait, made their TV acting debuts. Director Jan Kadar (whose "The Shop on Main Street" won the 1965 Oscar as Best Foreign Film) died just after completing filming. (Ironically, director Tom Gries died while wrapping up Muhammad Ali's theatrical movie, "The Greatest," two years earlier.)
