Big Fella

Country: UK

Genre: Drama, Musical



Musical built around the personality and unforgettable voice of the legendary Paul Robeson. Loosely based on the 1929 novel Banjo by Claude McKay, Joe, a Marseilles dockworker is asked by police to help find a young boy missing from an ocean liner. When Joe finally discovers the child, he learns that the boy escaped of his own will, and takes him to stay with a local cafe singer. As usual in a Robeson picture, music provides much of the entertainment.
