(1992)

Crazy Credits

The credits feature many prominent African-American entertainers (Bill Cosby and Janet Jackson among others) wearing X-Caps and using their arms to make the "X" symbol.
One of the few films that actually lists every member of the studio orchestra that recorded the soundtrack.
Throughout the credits are archival photographs of Malcolm X.
There is a seperate special thanks after the normal one that says: "Thank Allah for Bill Cosby, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Oprah Winfrey, Tracy Chapman, Prince, Janet Jackson, and Peggy Cooper-Carfritz." This is because they aided Spike Lee in raising money to finish the film when the production ran into financial trouble.
After the Thank Allah seperate special thanks, there is another one that says: "Thank Jesus for Aretha Franklin and Arrested Devleopment."
At the end of the credits the film is dedicated to Alex Haley, author of the book the movie is based on. There is also a picture of the book and a special note that says: "Read 'The Autobiography of Malcolm X'"
