BEWARE! (1946)
Louis Jordan attempts to save his alma mater, an all-black college, in this all-black feature-length soundie. He performs the title song and several other hits. This is one of the better movies of its type from this era and worth a look for the amazing musical performances alone. It’s an oft-overlooked historical artifact that’s a must-see for fans of early jazz and r&b.
