No no no, Not marketing to blacks!
17 November 2005 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

A very interesting, but badly titled (at least for today) piece about the "black marketers" that were prevalent around World War II (and still around today), A beef racketeering group starts up, jacking up prices for beef and annoying some people when butchers want cash instead of ration stamps for their beef. The perpetrators of this are all put to trial. Astonishingly acted by (I'm guessing) amateurs who "are law abiding citizens who volunteered to show how black markets work", the main actor is the "lawyer" who puts in quite a dramatic performance that I was almost sure, until the end the guy was actually in court. The end IS kind of befuddling, when he turns to talk to the camera, but sort of adds to the charm of the whole piece. Highly recommended!
