The strange woman ( visu )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
Hedy Lamarr insisted on the little-known and even less respected German expatriate Edgar Ulmer to direct "The strange woman," which would become his biggest budgeted picture and would feature her best performance. Lamarr plays a shrewish woman in early 19th-century Maine who schemes for the favors of three rich men. Ulmer survived low-budget productions for most of his career to become a cult figure in the world of cinema auteurism. "Moon over Harlem, " with an $8,000 budget and an all-black cast, is an excellent example of what created his fame. This film is a melodrama concerning a wealthy widow who remarries and subsequently accuses her daughter of trying to seduce her new husband

African American cinema ( visu )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
All three productions in this study package have a strong emphasis on black music. 'The Duke is Tops' was Lena Horne's film debut in which she plays a successful singer who nearly loses her man because his career as a producer is on the skids. In 'The Song of Freedom', a British film production, Paul Robeson portrays a successful concert singer who suddenly discovers he is the descendant of a West African queen whose tribe is now in need of a leader. This film is historically interesting for its recognition of Robeson's African roots and the pull of the African continent. 'Moon over Harlem' is an unusual musical melodrama about a Harlem widow who unwittingly marries a double-talking gangster involved in the numbers racket
