Critic Reviews for The Emperor Jones
A great performance from the legendary African-American singer Paul Robeson.
It is a distinguished offering, resolute and firm, with a most compelling portrayal by Paul Robeson.
Robeson's powerful presence, particularly through his wonderful, mellifluous voice, dominates each scene.
Paul Robeson gives one of his greatest film performances in this arty, dated, but interesting 1933 adaptation of Eugene O'Neill's play.
