I never knew about this one and uh...yeah. Five stars of what the fuck were people back then thinking?
kingarthur It's the reverse of Soul Man (or rather Soul Man is the reverse of this). Godfrey Cambridge was a black actor-comedian. In the first few minutes of this movie, he's in white face, playing a white man who wakes up one day to find he has been made black. Hilarity then ensues. It's from Melvin Van Peebles, the guy who did Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song.
