Many of the obvious flaws in the film were due to Oscar Micheaux's
difficulties in getting the production past the censors. Despite the
fact that the convict is acting as a minister, the act of showing one
in a minister's robes drinking was too much for the time.
Today it would be a matter of getting several million dollars from the
studio and re-shooting sections of the movie. Oscar Micheaux did not
have this luxury. This meant that he had to use the little money
available to him to change a completely unacceptable movie into one
that would help pay the bills.
The only way to do this was to add an ending that corrected everything,
and cut the sections of drinking, which happened to be crucial to the
story. This resulted not only in a lack of explanation for the story
and very clumsy movements from one scene to the next.
