The Man They Couldn't Silence - Paul Robeson

The Man They Couldn't Silence
Paul Robeson: great voice, grannies favourite, acclaimed Shakespearean actor, perhaps the most beloved man in Wales? Or perhaps a subversive, dangerous, maybe commie-agitator plotting sedition against the United States Government and everything they held dear? In fact he was both yet neither! One of the voices of the century, Robeson from youth spoke out against racism and social injustice, to the extent he became politically suspect and pretty much unemployable in the US. Coming to Britain he not only starred in one of the earliest Hammer Films (produced by his friend, the Spanish left/liberal film maker Enrique Carreras, whose son was to make Hammer world famous) but also was one of the original talkie stars of Ealing studios. Back then, a rather leftist organisation whose major ideological guiding light was Pen Tennyson, whose tragic early death rocked the UK film industry. Here he made films much to his taste, glorifying working class communities, inevitably set in Wales, the country where Robeson could do no wrong. So two iconic British studios were pretty much launched by the man! So here is a taste of the voice of the 20th century, the man they couldn't silence: Paul Roobeson! Beautiful. This is a must for all lovers of a great voice and for those concerned with social justice.
