Eliza is a slave who flees a Kentucky plantation after her son and a dignified father figure, Uncle Tom, are sold to a rival landowner. Her Dickensian quest eventually places her in the backwater kingdom of the sadistic Simon Legree. But the film's most memorable sequence is Eliza's flight to freedom across a treacherous ice floe (a staple of the many stage productions, which D.W. Griffith shamelessly appropriated for his 1920 film Way Down East)

Finally, I saw this classic. Credited with helping to ignite the Abolitionists and that led to the Civil War, this anti-slavery work is far different from the perverted stereotype of this novel.

A superb work.

See this with the PBS documentary "the Abolitionists".
