For me, the integrity of IB (and DP) was tarnished by having jokers like those two in them. It did used to be the case that QT chose the RIGHT actors for the right roles, but after DP and IB, it's just not the complete case anymore.
Doesn't look like there's any sign of them in the imdb cast. I didn't think QT hired them in back-to-back films just because they were all friends, but it was a way of QT having his own "Stock company" of supporting actors (A nod to old times) Looks like the streak might've ended here though.
Theres not alot of films in that genre but a few titles are: Drum, Skin Game, Puddin Head Wilson. Also ROOTs miniseries, which isnt a movie movie but still part of that genre. Also Goodbye Uncle Tom is more of a mondo movie, but thats completely about the sickening world of slavery.
Good reference picks (Saw Skin Game
a couple months back and enjoyed it) The Legend of Ni99er Charley
counts for it's plantation 1st act. Another from the slave era that I've got, but haven't watched yet:
I just noticed that so many of these movies seem to take place in the 1830s. Isn't it said that DU takes place in the 1850's? At least that makes it a bit closer
to "Wild West" times----One thing that always drives me nuts about Westerns is how the clothing & weaponry always seems to reflect the 1870s....Even though the storyline takes place during or before
The Civil War
