A Soldier's Story
Starring: Howard E. Rollins, Jr., Adolph Caesar
Director: Norman Jewison
Tensions flare in this gripping film about a murder on a black
army base near the end of World War II. Captain Davenport (Howard E. Rollins, Jr.)
a proud black army attorney is sent to Fort Neal, Louisiana, to investigate the
ruthless shooting death of Sergeant Waters (Adolph Caesar).
Through interviews with Sarge's men, Davenport learns that he was a vicious man who served the white world and
despised his own roots. Was the killer a bigoted white officer? Or could he have been
a black soldier embittered by Waters' constant race baiting? A Soldier's Story
is both a spellbinding mystery and a superb drama that transcends race.
