Hollywood Shuffle (1987)


  • Robert Townsend
  • Craigus R. Johnson
  • Helen Martin
  • Starletta DuPois
An actor limited to stereotypical roles because of his ethnicity, dreams of making it big as a highly respected performer. As he makes his rounds, the film takes a satiric look at African American actors in Hollywood.

Has anybody tracked down a copy of Hangup (1974) AKA Super Dude yet?

Is there anyway to re-up this movie??? Truly one of the best!

I honestly don't know. The Black Cinema movies are on the lowest priority list for re-ups. It could be several months before I even get to those.

Visit the Museum of Black Cult Cinema for additional information and digital media.
