In contrast to most of the violence-laden "blaxploitation" films of the period, this low-budget effort eschews exploitation for humanity and domestic drama. Leonard Jackson plays a barber who is also the domineering head of a middle-class African American family. Jackson is forced to rethink his values when his previously docile wife joins their three children in rebelling against her husband's retrogressive behavior.Written by

I like 5 on the black hand side
I like "5 on the black hand side" because it is a real cool movie from the past. I liked everything about the movie which were the studio(s), the theme song, the actors who starred on it & etc. I especially liked the humour in it which was really good through the jive talk & etc. I even watched this movie with my Mother whom was 8 when this film was released & I hafta tell you, Even though I was born 27 years, 49 days & a month after its release, I can still appreciate it. This film is so good that If I were to have a smartphone, computer or any other technological device, I'd stream it if it was available on any streaming service (e.g. Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube, etc.). I give props to everybody who had something to do with this including United Artists, Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Oscar Williams & etc.
