The 51 Year Old Oscar Micheaux
30 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film was the inspiration for Micheaux to write 'The Story of Dorothy Stanfield' eleven years later. The story is actually about her husband, Nathan Stanfield, who is living in hard times as a black medical doctor. It touches some very sensitive issues.
