South African Steam

Post by Gilbert B Norman »

A 1995 "remake' movie "Cry, the Beloved Country' is currently making rounds at the various Starz movie channels. While some may find the storyline regarding social injustice to be disturbing, it does feature some one minute of South African steam footage.

This production originally based upon a novel of same name, and previously released as ablack and white film, also was adapted for the stage as a musical titled"Lost in the Stars'. Included in that production was a song "Train to Johannesburg".
