The 50 Year Old Oscar Micheaux
31 October 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

When Micheaux is making original films, they are a disaster. When he adapts someone else's work, or even his own work, he's on safer territory. Because this is an original piece, it was a garbled failure, which was one of the reasons that black audiences were departing from him.
