Mantan Moreland was best known for his controversial and befuddled, scared of ghosts black chauffeur character in the Charlie Chan series. He also starred in what was then called "All-colored features". This movie poster is for a film called "Mantan Runs for Mayor".
In the early 1940's, Ted Toddy began releasing a large number of films that featured all Black casts. They were both features and shorts, and were distributed by Toddy, some were produced by him, and others were by others and either released or re-released through his Toddy organization. This poster has a cartoon theme. A wonderful and historical African American piece. The poster is archivally linen backed and ready for framing. We only have this one.
