Steppin Fechit Carves the Way
1 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A wealthy young society man is dating a beautiful young woman who he believes is also in his "class" because of her beautiful, classically trained singing voice.

In actuality, she is the daughter of a poor hotel maid, and in order to keep the boyfriend from finding out just how poor the family is, the mother manages to get a fancy room in the hotel to try to convince him that her daughter is "good enough" for him.

Short film made for a Negro only audience.

Some people give this movie negative reviews because Steppin Fetchit is in it. They don'y realize that this was 1945 and if it wasn't for Steppin Fetchit, there wouldn't have been a Sydney Poitier 20 years later.

Wise up people.
