Oscar Micheaux in Underworld / Dark Manhattan

Underworld / Dark Manhattan

1937 NR

In the seedy Chicago "Underworld," a high-priced prostitute, rebuffed by a college graduate, frames him for the murder of her lover. In the "Dark Manhattan" alleys of Harlem, an ambitious gangster's lust for money and women may cost him his life. These historic and entertaining dramas from 1937 feature all-African American casts, including Ralph Cooper, Bee Freeman and Cleo Herndon.
