    I really enjoyed this gem from Black Cinema; I never knew these RACE FILMS existed but it makes sense the era had RACE MUSIC so why not RACE FILMS?The star FRANCINE EVERETT was amazing; she gives a sexy, funny performance full of texture, emotion and sass. She should have been a HOLLYWOOD star. DIRTY GERTIE was well directed by SPENCER WILLIAMS who was a precursor for TYLER PERRY...like PERRY, SPENCER WILLIAMS appears in drag with full mustache as the VOODOO WOMAN who reluctantly foretells Gertie's tragic end; I'm going to check out more of WILLIAM's work.I saw this film on TCM as part of a series of RACE FILMS on Sunday evenings. I must give TCM UBER PROPS for broadcasting this RACE FILM series...I had no idea there was such an industry. After watching DIRTY GERTIE I became angry that FRANCINE EVERETT was denied HOLLYWOOD because she was Black and refused to play maid roles. So much talent that we've never heard of, UNSUNG talent but I then realized that if it weren't for actresses like FRANCINE EVERETT we wouldn't have celebrated Black actresses like HALLE BERRY and VIOLA DAVIS.Thank You TCM.

    Hey! Who was that fabulous tap dancing team? Also, who was the fortune teller? It looked like Andy of Amos and Andy. Any movie buffs out there know?
