Up into the early 1950’s, Hollywood produced White films that excluded African-Americans except as either servants or as buffoons. In the mid-fifties, independent-minded producers started making films with three-dimensional African-American characters. And by the mid-sixties, more and more films came out exploring African-Americans interacting with whites. And here in Hurry Sundown (1967), we see a film in which white corporatists attempt to cheat Blacks and poor whites. The topic of the film is real, but at times the characters are somewhat two-dimensional. Perhaps, the White producers did not hire enough knowledgeable staff to produce fully three dimensional characters.
