Judge Priest ★★★ 1934
Small-town judge in the old South stirs up the place with stinging humor and common-sense observances as he tangles with prejudices and civil injustices. Funny, warm slice-of-life is occasionally defeated by racist characterizations. Ford remade it later as “The Sun Shines Bright.” Taken from the Irvin S. Cobb stories. 80m/B VHS, DVD . Will Rogers, Stepin Fetchit, Anita Louise, Henry B. Walthall; D: John Ford.
