Synopsis: A French novelist passes off a Tunisian shepherdess as royalty to get back at his cheating wife.
DirMax Montagu CastJosephine Baker , Albert Prejean , Germaine Aussey .

B/W
77 min

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Edmond T. Greville. Josephine Baker, Albert Prejean, Robert Arnoux, Germaine Aussey, Georges Peclet, Viviane Romance, Jean Galland. Baker lives up to her legend in this disarming reworking of Pygmalion: a poor, beautiful, wild African lass is polished and educated by writer Prejean, then passed off as an Indian princess--much to the consternation of his snobbish, two-timing wife. Charming story (by Pepito Abatino, then Baker's husband), lavish Busby Berkeleyish musical numbers. Partially filmed in Tunisia.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Gerald Mayer. Dorothy Dandridge, Harry Belafonte, Robert Horton, Philip Hepburn. Well-intentioned but labored tale of black teacher in small Southern town trying to solve her young pupils' problems. Belafonte's film debut.

A year before they shot to stardom in Carmen Jones, Dorothy Dandridge and Harry Belafonte made this inspiring film about a gifted educator and a lost boy. Dandridge plays Jane... more

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Alfred E. Green. Jackie Robinson, Ruby Dee, Minor Watson, Louise Beavers, Richard Lane, Harry Shannon, Ben Lessy, Joel Fluellen. Straightforward bio of Robinson, the first black man to play major-league baseball. Fascinating as a social history; pointed in its presentation of the racial issues involved. Interestingly, Robinson's Negro League ball club is called the Black Panthers! Dee plays Robinson's wife; 40 years later, she was cast as his mother in the TV movie THE COURT- MARTIAL OF JACKIE ROBINSON.

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Vincente Minnelli. Eddie ``Rochester'' Anderson, Lena Horne, Ethel Waters, Louis Armstrong, Rex Ingram, Duke Ellington and His Orchestra, The Hall Johnson Choir. Stellar black cast in winning (if somewhat racist) musical fable about forces of good and evil vying for the soul of Little Joe (Anderson). John Bubbles' dancing, Waters singing ``Happiness Is a Thing Called Joe'' (written for the film) among musical highlights. First feature for Minnelli (who, with Waters and Ingram, came from the Broadway production).

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:    

D: Andrew L. Stone. Lena Horne, Bill (Bojangles) Robinson, Cab Calloway and His Band, Katherine Dunham, Fats Waller, Dooley Wilson, The Nicholas Brothers. This musical offers a legendary lineup of black performers, with Lena singing title song, Fats performing "Ain't Misbehavin'," others doing what they do best. Only problem: the so-called story is told in fragments, through flashbacks, and doesn't make much sense. Robinson is too old to be paired romantically with Horne, but they're terrific just the same.
