Although the notice begins by noting that Stowe's story is "too well known to require much description," it luckily goes on to describe the film in some detail -- revealing in the process how much freedom adapters had to vary this well known story.
For example, the script follows an idea that first showed up in some of the theatrical "Tom Shows," bringing Simon LeGree (as the article calls Legree) into the story from the start; it is from LeGree, not Haley, that Eliza escapes carrying Harry.

 Arthurian Film
Donner's film, which was shelved by the studio for several years before being dumped for television release, is one of the silliest films ever made about the Arthurian legend.
The charges leveled against the film are generally that the lead roles were miscast, that the direction was ponderous, and that, at nearly three hours, the film was too long.
Clearly, Zucker intends his film to be an Arthuriad for the 1990s, but the film fails to capture the spirit of the original legend or to make a case for its contemporary translation of the oft-told story of the Arthur-Lancelot-Guinevere love triangle.

 Images - In Focus
The emergence of the star system--the highlighting of individual film players--from the successful battle (1908-15) of the independent producers against the Edison-led monopoly, the MPPC (the Motion Picture Patents Company), soon resulted in the the even more inclusive structure of control that was the studio system.
The creation of fan materials, and particularly fan magazines, which started around 1910 and rose to a flood by the 1920s, typically blurred the distinction between individual/actor and the characters he or she played, between the real person and the "reel" person.
The use of "star presence," starting in the mid-1910s, as a major device for selling films to theater owners and to the public both restricted the individuality of the stars once their persona was fixed and allowed, through practices like block booking, studio heads to exploit stars beyond the films in which they actually appeared.

Those present knew he wasn't being clever; the applause accorded his words expressed a recognition that he was speaking the plain truth.
Born in 1910 into a samurai family, schooled as a visual artist, thrust by a propitious career twist into the Toho film studios of the 1930s, he worked his way up from horse handler to film editor to screenwriter.
In celebrating Kurosawa's life, one remembers not film, but moments, so indelibly stamped that they're not "cinematic" at all but have the character of memories: The droplets of rain, flying from the feathered arrows of The Seven Samurai as they battle thieves in the middle of a monsoon.

When Nazis steal Frankenstein's heart during World War II and transport it to Japan, the heart somehow ends up in the body of a young boy who then transforms into a Godzilla-sized version of the Frankenstein monster and demolishes Tokyo.
Silliness reigns, but the film also reflects Japanese bitterness about the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, fears about the results of human use of technology, and residual feelings of cultural inadequacy and fantasies of conquest that remain after Japan’s WWII defeat.
Some film historians claim that in such movies, robots are modern versions of the Frankenstein monster.
