The Big Timers

Synopsis

A poor singer borrows a fancy apartment in order to impress her fiancé and his family. This musical comedy with an all-black cast features an all-girl band, and there is even a song by famed comedian Stepin Fetchit. It is a prime example of what used to be called "race movies," films that were made by small, independent companies specifically for black audiences, since many theaters at the time were segregated. ~ Brian Gusse, Rovi
