All Critics (1)

Failed musical about painfully dated subject of minstrel shows, mainly avoids stereotyping black people, but has few positive virtues other than musical number A Great Day's Coming.

Audience Reviews for Minstrel Man

Minor ?B? musical, but it did nab two Academy Award nominations, for score and the song ?Remember Me to Carolina?. It is rather dated with all the black face in the movie, but the score is indeed good. Other than that it isn?t very memorable.

58/100. Minor "B" musical, but it did nab two Academy Award nominations, for score and the song "Remember Me to Carolina". It is rather dated with all the black face in the movie, but the score is indeed good. Other than that it isn't very memorable.
