GREETINGS & SALUTATIONS! Am a huge fan of African-American movies make by Oscar Devereaux Micheaux, Spencer Williams Junior and Noble Johnson name but a few. DWCMDIRECT certainly has the most African-American films out there, even titles I have only read about and motion pictures I've yet to see for myself. The prices are very reasonable too! It took me more than a decade to find about seventy-five movies, there are only 100 known race films out of more than 500 that were made and many were lost and a few were discovered in a shed near a railroad in Kansas or Oklahoma? They first were made on VHS and BETA video tapes and now being switched over to DVD format, easier to store, of course! Donated mine to the African-Methodist-Episcopal Church to show the youth and the adults too what Hollywood does not seem to make readily available to audiences eager to see the fine work. Spencer Williams pioneered sound in films in 1928 and 1929 in addition to acting in, producing and directing excellent family orientated films. You certainly cannot go wrong when you obtain restored race films from DWCMDIRECT!
