-The film is about the abolitionist John Brown and his campaign against slavery prior to the American Civil War.

-The events leading up to the bloody confrontation between Brown and the US Army at Harper’s Ferry, Virginia, are treated in an even-handed fashion: Brown’s desire to free the slaves is “right,” but his methods are “wrong.”

-Starring Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Raymond Massey, and Ronald Reagan, the film was one of the top-grossing films of the year, being the seventh Flynn–de Havilland collaboration.
