Movie Details

Delroy Lindo and Henry Czerny star in this TNT Original about Matthew Henson, the unsung hero of Robert Peary's historic expedition to the North Pole. Shown from the vantage point of Henson, an African American who began the journey as Peary's valet, the film explores his role in the expedition, eventually painting him as its most valuable member. Unfortunately, after completing their successful journey, Peary earned international fame while Henson was all but relegated to obscurity. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi
