I think that films have to be judged on grounds other than whether they 
have "white saviors", literature as well. The prototypical "white 
savior" novel is "Huckleberry Finn", after all. And if they ever decide 
to make a movie that is sympathetic to John Brown, I'd welcome that. 
What we have now is the atrocious "Santa Fe Trail" that I reviewed a 
while back: http://louisproyect.wordpress.com/2012/04/10/santa-fe-trail/.
