Abstract:

Dirty Gertie from Harlem U.S.A.: Dancer Gertie La Rue is the toast of Harlem, but she's been two-timing her beau, Al, the man who put her in the spotlight. Fearing Al's retribution, Gertie drags her entire show troupe out to the remote island of Rinidad, where she hope to lay low for a while. She's also managed to make her self imposed exile a lucrative one, setting up a residency at Diamond Joe's nightclub. While Gertie drinks, cusses, and flirts her way across Rinidad, dark clouds are gathering overhead; local revivalist Jonathan Christian is on a moral crusade to have her deported.

Sepia Cinderella: All black cast musical romance in which a poor dancer must compete with a rich lady for the man she loves. The man, a famous singer, leaves his beloved to pursue his career and the high life. Eventually he discovers there is more to life than a place in society and returns to his singer/girlfriend.
