Band of Angels is an often absurd Civil War-era romantic tale of a white woman (Yvonne De Carlo) sold into slavery and the plantation owner who buys her finds Gable back in Gone With the Wind form as the handsome, roguish Southerner whose livelihood stands on the edge of extinction. While the film’s attempt to sell Gable as a kindly ”massa” verges on offensive, Poitier (as his educated ward) possesses a racial rage that presages the turmoil of the 1960s. Sadly, the film’s neutered conclusion reflects a less sophisticated time. EXTRAS None.
