BUCK AND THE PREACHER (1972): Sidney Poitier stars as Buck, a trail guide leading former slaves to homesteads in the West. Harry Belafonte is the Preacher, a con-man minister who is forced into helping Buck in his dangerous work. When groups of vicious white men and bounty hunters become hellbent on terrorizing and stopping the wagon trains from heading West, Buck and the Preacher are forced to fight back by any means necessary. Directed by Sidney Poitier, this revolutionary black western was a heavy influence on DJANGO UNCHAINED.
