This was a movie that hasn't been seen since its theatrical release years ago since it was shown only once on television. After years of speculation,the motion picture "Purlie Victorious"(AKA Gone Are The Days)finally comes out on DVD. Released in 1963 and based on the scene play,written by Ossie Davis,this was a movie that was well-acted but shot on a weak budget scale. Ossie Davis oozes charisma and his spouse Ruby Dee is testing a hero much younger than he is,since at the time this movie was made Ruby Dee was very convincing at the age of 39. The movie itself is mostly a stagebound,broadly acted about racism in the South and financial chicanery,since this film was made in 1963 which gives the setting for the tone of bigotry here in the height of the civil rights movement of that period. Davis' enjoy would soon turned into the musical "Purlie!",which ran on Broadway and starred Ben Vereen and Sherman Hemsley. But getting back to the film per se,since the reason it hasn't been seen in years is because of some of racist commentary and so forth. It has finally come to DVD for the first time in years.What makes this film stand out is the performances which are absolutely brilliant beyond compare. Its details a cast of who's who here which contains the hilarious Godfrey Cambridge and Sorrell Brooke as a died in the wool Southern Gentleman. Sorrell Brooke is better known for testing Southern kind characters mainly in the role of Boss Hogg on the series "The Dukes Of Hazzard". It also details here the movie debut of actor Alan Alda since this was his first detail movie as one of the Southern aristocrats. The movie would be a steppingstone for Alda,whom would go on to bigger and better things,and this would be long before anyone heard of the word MASH.
If you've ever wondered whether anything satirical was ever made about the civil rights struggles of the 1960s, Ossie Davis' Purlie Victorious may be the respond you're looking for. Davis, who is the movie's and original play's author, plays the game role as a preacher who, with support from fiancée Lutiebelle Jenkins (wife Ruby Dee), tries to claim his $500 inheritance from former employer Stonewall Jackson Cotchipee (Sorrell Booke in his Dukes of Hazzard southern accent). Jenkins manages to convince Cotchipee she's the cousin of Purlie...until she signs her own name on the receipt! While that's all I'll reveal of the plot, I'd also like to mention the another players: Beah Richards, newcomer Alan Alda, and a hilarious turn by Godfrey Cambridge. While some of the performances may be over-the-top, that shouldn't stop you from enjoying the nuances of characterization that inform the narrative to its eventual conclusion. By all means, seek this one out.
Actually, I have yet to see a live ver with Ossie & Ruby but read the enjoy years ago. I can't wait to see it realized especially with the original author, Ossie Davis, testing Purlie. I did see a ver with Melba Moore testing Lutiebelle which was quite nice - but Ossie Davis & Ruby Dee are, as far as I'm concerned, the quintessential First Couple in African-American theatre - any possibility to see them perform together is everytime a treat. Even as a read, the enjoy is quite hilarious and it works all the more imagining such talent as Ossie & Ruby realizing the roles. As a matter of fact, I read "Purlie Victorious" and 'Day of Absence" by Douglas Turner Ward, other perfect example of black theatre, together - they complement every another quite well as shining examples of black comedy satirizing existing racial attitudes then (hmmmm..and now..) The enjoy is timeless, is not at ALL archaic by todays standards as many of the same problems tackled in Purlie as well as Day of Absence still exist, alas, in 2007.But on a lighter note, owning a copy of "Purlie Victorious" performed by its auspicious author, the incomparable Ossie Davis, is simply a gotta for your collection.
