Hollywood Shuffle

I just noticed that MGM put some full-length films on YouTube for free. One of the films available now is Robert Townsend's Hollywood Shuffle. This film is Townsend's satirical look at the stereotypical roles played by African Americans in Hollywood films. See especially the "Black Acting School" section starting at about 16 minutes into the video.

See the video below or check out the full-screen version at YouTube.

YouTube asks the viewer to confirm their age before viewing, so the video may not work automatically. Just follow the full-feature link above.
