Mantan Moreland was best known for his controviersial befuddled, scared of ghosts black chauffeur character in the Charlie Chan series, and starred in what was then called "all-colored features". This movie is "Come On Cowboy".
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.
A wonderful and historical African American piece, ready for framing with a large and graphic image of Mantan on a horse as a Cowboy shooting up the town, and the cactus running away. COOL! The poster is archivally linen backed and ready for framing. We only have this one.
