The 56 Year Old Oscar Micheaux
30 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film is regarded as another garbled failure in conjunction with Hubert Julian. It is about the contribution of black men to boxing, and was as interesting as watching Hitchcock's 'Foreign Correspondent'. In fact, it was as bad as watching Cecil B. DeMille's 'Northwest Mounted Police'.
