Kelaflix Classics Bundle #11 - 4 Spencer Williams Films
Spencer Williams (July 14, 1893 – December 13, 1969) was an African American actor and filmmaker. He was best known for playing Andy in the Amos 'n Andy television show and for directing the 1941 race film The Blood of Jesus. Williams was a pioneer African-American film producer and director.
During the 1930s, Williams secured small roles in race films, a genre of low-budget, independently-produced films with all-black casts that were created solely for exhibition in racially segregated theaters. Williams also created two screenplays for race film production: the Western film Harlem Rides the Range and the horror-comedy Son of Ingagi, both released in 1939.
Marching On! is a 1943 American race film directed and written by Spencer Williams. Sequences were filmed at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. The film was later rereleased with additional sequences under the title 'Where's My Man To-Nite?'.
