Paul Winfield's, Cicely Tyson’s & Kevin Hook's Great “SOUNDER”


“Sounder” - one of this planet’s greatest movies. “Sounder”, a film released in 1972, starring Paul Winfield, Cicely Tyson, Kevin Hooks, was one of the realest pieces of cinema ever to grace a theater. I love this film so much I can hardly write this post...”Sounder” just blew me away with the realism of the actors, the storyline, the set...every aspect of this movie screamed “masterpiece”.

There is no sensible way this film could have not received an Academy Award - but guess what? It didn’t. And what a crying shame, motion pictures don’t get better than “Sounder”. The actors must of had to lie in the sauna from the energy they brought to that movie. Here’s another review by Chris Aldridge, read what he has to say: ”Sounder” review. Thanks Chris, for knowing it when you see it.

Cicely Tyson, Kevin Hooks, Paul Winfield I will always love and respect how you made me enter a time gone into the past. I’ll never forget how you made me feel my heritage - and made me proud of my heritage. What I’m trying to say is thank you for “Sounder”.

I remember giving my first book report on this! (The actual book, not the movie.)

angelika, in making this post I found out something I didn't know: that this movie was based on a novel. Ol' Hollywood did it again. I had to learn that movies are alot of times derived from books...I wasn't aware of that. And I write screenplays...go figure. "Sounder" is just plain old good stuff. What movies should be. Thanks for coming by and relating, angelika.
