Uncle Tom’s Cabin Illustrated by F.A. McGinn

The Daily Cartoonist joins the public domain crowd by presenting the adaptation of 1927’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin film. Itself an adaptation of the 1852 Harriet Beecher Stowe classic which was in public domain at the time of the movie.

In 1928 Universal re-released their 1927 silent film Uncle Tom’s Cabin with a soundtrack. The publicity for the re-release included a comic strip adaptation in twelve “chapters.” It was illustrated by Forest Ages McGinn.

One thought on “Uncle Tom’s Cabin Illustrated by F.A. McGinn

  1. Not quite the ending Harriet BeStowed upon it! Nice to see non-stereotyped faces in a strip that old.
