Critic Reviews for The Emperor Jones
It is a distinguished offering, resolute and firm, with a most compelling portrayal by Paul Robeson.
Paul Robeson gives one of his greatest film performances in this arty, dated, but interesting 1933 adaptation of Eugene O'Neill's play.
A great performance from the legendary African-American singer Paul Robeson.
Robeson's powerful presence, particularly through his wonderful, mellifluous voice, dominates each scene.
Audience Reviews for The Emperor Jones
I didn't watch the whole movie, I got bored. If you want to see a good old African American film, you may find this one interesting, but other than that, it's kind of boring.
