    I am so glad that TCM had a copy of this movie to be shown here on TCM. For years, we knew of Miss Baker's movies and exploits in Europe, but to see it on here tonight was such a treat. I was a bit surprised to see it being a part of the Hollywood and Arab influence this month but now I see why because of the role she played. I wondered if by chance the film was able to be shown in the U.S. but more than likely not. Either way, I am so glad that it was shown. thank you.

    This really is a delight of a film. Especially when one considers that it is being played against a backdrop of American Racism and ugliness toward her during the period of La Baker's heyday. America treated her badly and certainly would never have put her in films except in the role of a maid. Josephine was no Hattie McDaniel's and needed to be seen in a star vehicle if one were to appreciate what she was as a performer.I don't think that this film fully captures her energy and at times the visual editing is a bit erratic but she shines through nonetheless. This film is indeed a rare treat and one that is not to be missed.

    Miss Baker convinces as the almost-civilized native girl in this enjoyable little film. Physically larger in persona than presumed, and not at all grand (as one might assume from her reputation), her effervescent performance makes this a "must". Just to hear her sing "My Africa' will startle you - this voice is nothing like expected. The production is laughably cute in its attempts to out-do Hollywood but much attention is made to make La Baker look like the star she was. The relationships, costumes, attitudes, and positioning in the frames all speak of respect for her.
