Lydia Bailey( Visual )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In the year 1802, the infant Republic of Haiti, barely a year old, found itself tottering. It had won its freedom from the French while Napoleon was engaged elsewhere, but now the Master of Europe had turned his eye and his might against them, and all that opposed Napoleon was an ex-slave, Toussaint l'Ouverture, with a tiny nation wracked by factions and keyed to hysteria by the constant beat of jungle drums. On February 6th of the year 1802, Napoleon's fleet under the command of General Leclerc sailed into Cap François, and after months of rumblings, the volcano that was Haiti finally erupted. In the weeks that followed, Toussaint and his men withdrew into the mountains, wetting the scorched fields of their homeland with the blood of the Emperor's army. But while their troops sought a deadly and elusive enemy, glamorous Pauline, the sister of Napoleon, and her consort, Leclerc, strove to create a new Paris in Cap François." "Narrative picks up Robertson, an American lawyer from Baltimore, arriving in French-held Haiti to gain the signature of one Lydia Bailey to a document which will transfer a fortune to the United States. He makes his appearance just as the Ameircan consul is hurriedly packing to leave the island, since hostilities between the French and the Negroes momentarily is expected. Within the first few minutes of arrival, Robertson finds himself involved in the dissension, a little Negro boy carrying his bag killed and he himself knocked out by one of the top revolutionaries, William Marshall, known as King Dick. Dick, high up in the rebel forces, helps him reach the plantation where he can find Lydia Bailey, the ward of Charles Korvin, a French officer. Resultant footage delves into voodooism, attacks by the blacks upon white-held plantations, Robertson saving Lydia Bailey from massacre, and later efforts of the French to lure Toussaint l'Ouverture, leader of the blacks, into a false truce so he may be seized"--Variety review, May 28, 1952
