Oscar Micheaux's Last Film
29 October 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

The 64 year old Oscar Micheaux made this swansong film which lasted for three hours and was a box office disaster. It was an adaptation of his own novel, 'The Wind from Nowhere', but he was still doing the same thing as Alfred Hitchcock: adapting novels. The question is, was this film any better than 'The Paradine Case'?
