Overview

Synopsis

Juke Joint
Juke Joint is one of the better-known films, produced especially for African-American audiences in the 1930s and 1940s. Spencer Williams Jr. and July Jones play a couple of shabby but resourceful gents who hit town with only 25 cents between them. Turning on the charm with various ladies of wealth, Williams Jr. and Jones manage to bankroll a nightclub. The whole plot is, of course, an excuse to spotlight several variety acts. Spencer Williams Jr., the "auteur" of Juke Joint, is the same corpulent gent who played Andrew H. Brown on the old Amos 'N' Andy TV series. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Reet, Petite and Gone
The all-black Reet, Petite and Gone revives a plot that had already been worn out in mainstream "white" films. A singer's father dies, leaving her a fortune. A shifty attorney arranges things so that the singer is left out in the cold. The attorney meets with foul play, and the singer is the prime suspect. All ends happily with a floor show. The male star of Reet, Petite and Gone is bandleader Louis Jordan, while the singing is provided by June Richmond. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
