You've got to check out this wonderfully made short film called John Henry and the Railroad. It was made by Whitestone Motion Pictures, and it turned out to be an amazingly shot and entertaining film. I'm a huge fan of history and westerns, and I loved how this inspiring tale was told. This is a must watch for anyone who loves movie, it's fantastic! The cinematography, the acting, the direction...awesome!
This is the tale of John Henry. The one from the railroad story. Legend goes that John Henry was a freed slave. John took his only son out looking for work. He was out to make a new life for himself. He heard somethin' about railroad work needing to be done. So that's where he went. But trouble was just around the bend.
