Vince and Len start off 2019 in style and with much class, reviewing director Barry Jenkins' adaptation of the late James Baldwin's mesmerizing novel IF BEALE STREET TALK, featuring Stephen James, Regina King, Colman Domingo, Micheal Beach and the debut lead of Kiki Layne.
Vince and Len share a table at Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse to pick apart the quintessential Eddie Murphy - 1989's HARLEM NIGHTS - starring Murphy, Redd Foxx, Della Reese, Jasmine Guy and the ghost of Richard Pryor.
Listener feedback, winning iTunes comments, a running commentary and the coolest man ever to walk the planet. COTTON COMES TO HARLEM in 1970 with smoothness and wit following close behind.
Return with us to the 1930s, when the independent spirit of creativity shown itself in the 'race films' that played theaters in Negro parts of town and in the hoofers, clowns and saucy sirens that populated those cheap celluloid fare. But whispering from below the musical numbers and paper-thin mob tale of PARADISE IN HARLEM is a commentary on black lives and a time capsule of forgotten talent.
