Stayin Alive aka Fight For Your Life



Surely the re-release of this fine film would help clarify and resolve the fraught state of race relations in the USA today.

Uncle Tom and Little Eva



Not a single stereotype about African-Americans left unexplored!

THE HOUSE I LIVE IN



Ol' Blue Eyes fights prejudice with a smile and a song. Where's Frankie and his good-natured common sense when we need him today?

Follies of the Madmen #207

How to Apply Blackface


Denison's make-up guide (1926) was a catalogue of the various products sold by Denison, but it also offered detailed instructions on how to use their products. Below is their guide for "blacking up" using their Superfine Minstrel Black make-up paint. There were similar how-to's for other ethnic types such as the 'Ghetto Jew,' the Japanese, Irishman, Chinaman, etc. See more images from the catalogue at UVA's online exhibit, Uncle Tom's Cabin & American Culture.

Not a song, but still another entry in our fine old catalog of comedy that nowadays would have the PC-minded bearing down on you faster than a truck full of tortillas on Cinco de Mayo.

If the poster allures, the full movie follows. Please listen to the theme song, if nothing else.
