Played by a tall and dignified Sterling Hayden, John Brown is portrayed as a tragic figure in this television miniseries. We see him speaking in the trial and in jail, and meeting his death at the scaffold. The protagonist of the series resembles the historic artist-writer David Hunter Strother (also known as Porte Crayon) who was covering the Virginian saga of John Brown from beginning to end.
