All Corporal Jericho Jackson (Paul Robeson) wants to do is fight for his country but on his way to the battlefields of Europe, he accidentally kills a man; he is sentenced to the firing squad. But Jericho will not obey this unjust verdict. Making his escape, he flees to Africa and finds a new life leading a desert tribe, defending them against violent brigands. However, Jericho`s past is pursuing him: a former friend has vowed revenge and is catching up fast... Paul Robeson was the first African-American movie star and Jericho was one of his greatest films.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jericho Jackson: corporal, medic, nomadic desert leader 28 July 2013
By Annie Van Auken - Published on Amazon.com
In JERICHO, Paul Robeson portrays a military medic (Cpl. Jericho Jackson) who disobeys orders and rescues six black soldiers trapped on a torpedoed ship. Jackson is then forced to defend himself from an attacking sergeant; the man falls, hits his head and dies and Jackson is imprisoned to await a court martial death sentence. When he's released from the brig for a Christmas Eve celebration, the corporal goes AWOL into the North African desert, where he falls in with a nomadic tribe and becomes their leader. Curiously, the proudly elegant Robeson sings "Shortnin' Bread," plus two of his original compositions. Robeson's wife (Eslanda) appears as a tribal princess.

The same year "Jericho" was released (1937), Paul Robeson also starred in KING SOLOMON'S MINES. (VHS version)

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.

(6.3) Jericho (UK-1937) - Paul Robeson/Henry Wilcoxon/Wallace Ford/Kouka/John Laurie/James Carew/Eslanda Robeson
