James C. Taylor

I recently read Harry Belafonte's autobiography (which I strongly recommend by the way). In it he describes how he almost abandoned the making of this film after the studio all but eliminated any trace of the interracial romance between him and his Swedish-born co-star, rendering the final third of the movie pretty confusing and nonsensical. It was his old classmate from acting school, a certain Marlon Brando, who convinced him to stick with the project to avoid ending up on Hollywood's blacklist.
