    All I know is Netflix better get with the program because Amazon is doing it big. this is a number one classic movie in the African American genre. What better actress than Ms.Carroll then they have Mr. James Earl Jones to offset this fabulous team. I enjoyed them back then and still continue to love this movie today. Encore! Encore!
