Ten Nights in a Barroom (1926) IS AND EXCELLENT EXAMPLE OF AN EARLY RACE FILM.
Ten Nights in a Barrom(1926) is one of four films produced by the Colored Players Film Corporation of Philadelphia, in the 1920's in Philadelphia, PA. All of the films were considered race films and cared significant and important racial content. My father Sam Sadler was in two of these movies. Ten Nights in a Barroomand The Prince of His Race.The American Film Institute lists his name in cast credits in Ten Nights in a Barroom. I am searching for a copy of both films. I am aware of one copy of Ten Nights in a Barroom (1926)that is located at the George Eastman House in Rochester, NY. But cannot find a copy of The Prince of his race.I have a photo of my father taken on the street near the studio during the filming.
