Somewhat entertaining documentary that takes a look at the early, all black cast westerns, which were made from the 1920s-50s. Most of the interesting films they talk about are sadly lost so we don't get to see any clips and the documentary is full of stories we've already heard regarding the racism of the times and why black producer's had to make their own films. I wish more detail had gone into how production got started on these films instead of the same stories being told.
We really need Turner Classic Movies or someone like them to produce a great documentary on the early race films.
