|A pair of independent black features from the 40s. The crime drama 'Murder on Lenox Avenue' and the comedy 'Boy! What a Girl' MURDER ON LENOX AVENUE (1941) - Dramatic events in a Harlem apartment house center around Pa Wilkins, chosen by the Better Business League to replace their ousted, crooked leader Marshall and Pa's ward Jim Bracton, a two-timing Romeo - 63 Minutes. BOY! WHAT A GIRL! (1947) This rediscovered all-black-cast musical comedy features Tim Moore as a bald, cigar-smoking female impersonator pursued by three men with marriage on their minds. The story revolves around two young would-be show business entrepreneurs who are trying to raise money for their production. Circumstances dictate that Tim Moore pose as a wealthy Parisian businesswoman, Madame Deborah, in order to induce financial assistance from a potential backer. Meanwhile, the real Madame shows up and predictable comedy situations ensue, all interspersed with quite entertaining musical numbers, first at a rent party and later at a more formal gathering on the roof garden. Seeing rubber faced Tim Moore in drag with a cheesy wig being ardently sought after by three suitors is pretty funny - 72 Minutes.|
