Harlem on the Prairie ★ Bad Man of Harlem 1938

This first-ever western with an all-black cast has Jeffries helping a young lady find hidden gold and foiling a villain. Even though the technical standards and acting are below par, this is worth watching for the singing and a comedy routine done by a well-known contemporary black team. ♫Harlem On The Prairie; Romance In The Rain. 54m/B VHS . Herbert Jeffries, Mantan Moreland, F.E. (Flourney) Miller, Connie Harris, Maceo B. Sheffield, William Spencer Jr.; D: Sam Newfield.
