Trivia

The lead character Henry Glory pays his way through university by selling copies of his own novel door to door. This is a self-reference by director Oscar Micheaux, who supported himself much the same way when he was starting out as a writer. See more »

Okay crime thriller is a bit too slow and creaky to be enjoyed fully
18 August 2007 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Black night watchman finds the body of a dead white woman on the job and is accused of the crime.

Good but unremarkable crime drama set interestingly in a world thats both black and white. Many of the so called race films have casts that are entirely black, here there is a mix, which is rather unique. The problem with the film is that although it was made in 1935 it moves and behaves like a film five or six years earlier. Its slow and creaky nature reminds me of a film like Sinister Hands or The Shadow Laughs.

Its a good little story but there is a good chance you'll get bored with it and start speeding through it (I did)
