Their Mississippi landlady has gone to Harlem and is betting heavily and winning. When she goes to collect she finds the gambler dead and she is arrested for killing him.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This rare film of Oscar Micheaux's not viewable in this cheap and amateur transfer from Synergy Entertainment. The top eighth? of the screen is chopped off so that one cannot see the actor's heads. Did no one look at the transfer before before marketing this item?

While Micheaux was a Black film pioneer, many of his films were poorly acted, poorly staged, terrible with continuity, poorly edited, and almost incomprehensible. This is one such film. A grand mess. Even if you watch this film out of historical curiousity, you will either fall asleep or you'll eject this video long before the end. The shadows and lighting are so bad that you can't really make out what's going on (as well as the roar of the poorly preserved soundtrack). Find grandma's home movies of her winning the flower arrangement contest at the county fair and I'll guarantee that you'll find that more entertaining than this!

and ever more poorly scripted, too. But Micheaux's films ARE also important cinematic history that absolutely deserves to be preserved on DVD. Would a boxed set be too impossible to ask for, Facets?
