The inventive director King Vidor reeceived a well-deserved Oscar nomination for making MGM's first all-black feature, shot on locations and later dubbed for sound.
It's best looked at as an historical curiosity that gives one an idea of the African-Americans beginnings in the Hollywood movie before even the race films.
Vidor's gaze can be condescendingly paternal.
A milestone on the road that led from Stepin Fetchit to Sidney Poitier to Spike Lee...
It is admirable that Vidor wanted to show "the Southern Negro as he is" in this historically important, all-black musical film intended for a general audience as an authentic representation of black culture in the 1920s, but it is also unfortunately very condescending and artificial.
Yeah. Not much to mine of interest here. Blacks on screen! Ooh wow! It's a wee bit condescending.
