It's a satire, albiet not a particular successful one. Great performances
To see the legendary Ethel Waters at her prime, as well as such an early performance from Sammy Davis, Jr. makes this a must-see. This despite the rather stupid attempt at satire. It did little to advance the mid-1930's plight of Black folks, other than giving the actors paying jobs!
Enjoy it for the historic performances and try to ignore the pretty awful stereotypical goings-on.
