Aside from being a groundbreaking, award-winning actor, Sidney Poitier also directed, at a time when there were very few black filmmakers. This 1972 western is his first film as a director and is unjustly overlooked. Poitier plays a wagonmaster leading wagon trains of black settlers West. A gang of white mercenaries harass the trains in an effort to return them to the South. Black characters are largely absent from the most American of genres so this film is striking for a number of reasons; it also has a mostly positive, non-stereotypical depiction of the Native American characters. Poitier and a nearly unrecognizable Harry Belafonte have a great rapport together, and they would work together again on the comic crime movie "Uptown Saturday Night." Ruby Dee co-stars.
