Tamango (1958)






































Starring:

Storyline
When a revolt occurs, Dandridge as a marginalized person tries to stay uninvolved, even though she has some attraction to the revolt leader Tamango. She is not really liked by the African captives as she has "given" herself to the white captain and is, of course, a slave to the white crew members. Curt Jurgens, as a slave ship captain is obviously not the nicest person in the world, but seems to have some genuine affection for Aichie and treats her comparatively well. Aichie has suppressed bitter resentment about her slave origins and treatment by former masters, but still has hopes for a possible future with Jurgens, even after she finds out he has plans to wed a white woman and live in Holland. However, when confronted, he claims he will stay with Aichie and even make her a free woman. When the revolt begins she is forced to make a decision one where her loyalties lie; with the captain or with the slaves.

I saw "Tamango" a couple of years ago. I was surprised at how good the movie is. It is a pity tha it has not been restored in its widescreen CinemaScope format, bright colors and with the original French soundtrack. I hope one day that will be done, for it merits that effort. A big, posthumous "Bravo!" for Dorothy Dandridge, classic author Prosper Merimee, the American black-listed director John Berry, German actor Jurgens and then medicine student Alex Cressan from Martinique.
