Melancholy Dame, The (1929)
** (out of 4)
A store owner's (Edward Thompson) wife (Evelyn Preer) is highly upset that her husband is friendly with a waitress but there's an even bigger secret he's keeping. This black cast short really isn't that funny and doesn't contain too much of anything. There's a nice twist at the end but it's not worth sitting through just to get to it. Spencer Williams co-stars.
If you're interested in early race films then you'll still want to check this one out. You'll also want to follow the career of Williams who would go onto become one of the biggest directors in race cinema.
