Greetings & Salutations! While we see the story of the great African-American legend, we are provided really side splitting comedy relief by Mantan Moreland (1902-1973), also an African-American legend in himself. Who can forget Mantan in "Next Time I Marry" (1938), also known as "Trailer Romance," as well as in "Tell No Tales" (1939), or in "There's That Woman Again" (1939). Or in "Irish Luck", also known as "Amateur Detective" in 1939. This years marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mantan Moreland, in Monroe, Louisiana on September 3rd, 1902, perhaps a long awaited star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is due?
