Enjoyed viewing this film about an African American film during the Year 1927 and loved the entire story that concerned itself with a successful piano player who was a very good person and lived in a boarding house with other people. He noticed a certain lady was being abused by her father and decided to protect her and provide a place to protect her from any more harm. It was not too long that he decided to marry her and completely change her life and give her more security. However, her father had a very serious drinking problem and was convinced by a friend of his to abducted his daughter and bring her into the entertainment business or prostitution. This story has many twists and turns and is a great film about race and there are plenty of mixed emotions in 1927 with relationships between Black & White people. I doubt if this film was very popular during the 1920's but our country has progressed much further today.
