Boy! What a Girl!

Dir: Arthur Leonard (USA, 1947, 16mm, 65 min.)

This rediscovered all-black-cast musical stars Tim Moore ("The Kingfish" on Amos and Andy) as a bald, cigar-smoking butch queen pursued by three men with marriage on their minds. The romantic element in this romantic comedy is heterosexual, yet its comic element is utterly queer. Produced for contemporary black audiences, Boy! What a Girl! features some of the best black musical and comic talent of its day.

Chris Straayer will introduce the film in the context of the "temporary transvestite film," a comic subgenre of which the film is a uniquely interesting example.
