There was a Soul Man before Soul Man.

I never knew about this one and uh...yeah. Five stars of what the fuck were people back then thinking?

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.

I just watched the trailer and a few scenes on Youtube.

This would so never get made today.

Trailer is in the hopper as well. But you're right , this wouldn't. Then again, Ooga Booga got made.

Whole movie is in the hopper too. It never would get made today but thankfully thats what the 70's was for.
