  1. Stepin Fetchit…said.. "Where the police is…I generally ain't." So funny! I really enjoyed this mystery movie. So much talent among my people. 1948 was, indeed, a good year.

    Thanks for posting this video.

  2. Many thanks for this. Despite the rediscovery of so many black films from the 1930s and 1940s they are still neglected by tv stations and dvd companies. It is good to have the chance to see these films rather than just read about them.
