Quadroon [a.k.a. The Color of Truth] (1971)





















Starring:


Storyline
A story of love, lust, violence and murder on a sadistic southern plantation during the slave era. Caleb (Tim Kincaid, Bad Girls Dormitory), a yankee visiting family in New Orleans, loses all his money in a card game and is forced to get a job as a teacher. The white men and women are taught in institutions and the slaves aren't taught, so that leaves the quadroon women, three quarters white and one quarter black, raised to be cultured and erudite so they can make suitable concubines for rich white landowners. Caleb falls in love with one of his pupils, the beautiful Coral (Kathrine McKee), but she is already promised to the dastardly Dupree (George Lupo). Caleb must now find a way to escape with Coral before she falls victim to Dupree's nasty intentions.

I think the predecessor for Drum and Mandingo and this movie was Slaves (1969?) with Steven Boyd, Ossie Davis and Dionne Warwick. I saw that as a child about 1972 as a dbl bill at a movie house in East Orange, NJ. NO COPIES ARE TO BE FOUND! I think Dionne had them all burned and Ossie might have had the last one but Ruby Dee has it somewhere...

Now that was a movie, I wish I could find it. Lord knows I've tried..

Hi Moni,

it's quite funny for us french people to learn that Slaves with Dionne Warwick and Ossie is so scarce today, because it had a big distribution on french VHS video tape back in the 80's.

It was published on René Chateau's video label under the title "La maitresse noire" (Black Mistress).

Chateau was Jeau-Paul Belmondo's associate and press attaché. He also was Bruce Lee's promoter for France and owned a famous movie theather in Paris (the Hollywood Boulevard). Last but not least, the Hollywood Boulevard had one room specialized in blaxploitation films, and a lot of blax classics were edited on Chateau video label.

I own the french vhs of "La Maitresse Noire", as you can see on this link it's easy to find here :

I cannot rip vhs, but may find some links for it on french blogs...

I looked everywhere I knew to look for the English version of Slaves. Good find Jean. I seen on IMDB that there where several international titles of this movie.

Moni I know you or someone you know recorded this on VHS, haha. It will surface in due time. We just have to show patience.

Jean, I hope you downloaded that cos the link is dead. Could you re-post it, if you did? Thanks.

Hi Lupin, sadly I didn't dowload this french dubbed version of Slaves, cause I already own the VHS tape...
Now "Les introuvables" is closed, but they said their blog might re-open in May, after the french presidential election. The left candidate François Hollande has promised he would abrogate HADOPI, and introduce a global licence. Actually he has good chance to be elected, as many french people are fed up with Sarkozy, his racist ministers and bling attitudes.

If les "introuvables" re-opens, I think they will re-up most of the filml posted on MU. So we now just have to wait.

greetings from France,
