Classic Black Cinema Series: ‘Zouzou’

$7 – $9

The 1934 French melodrama ‘Zouzou’ marks the first time a Black woman played a leading role in a major film. That’s Josephine Baker, a Black dancer/singer/actress who plays a circus performer fighting to clear her lover, played by white leading man Jean Gabin (‘The Wages of Fear’), of allegations stemming from a crime he didn’t commit.
