A straightforward biography of Carver, the innovative black scientist who is played by Carver himself. We see him in his orphaned childhood developing his probing instincts and as an adult discovering countless uses for the peanut. After making that tasty treat into a profitable industry,
Carver went on to head the Tuskegee Institute Agricultural Department. Rarely enthralling, the amateur acting is stilted and the photography just passable, but it is of educational and historical value.
