Dirty Gertie from Harlem
Directed by Spencer Williams
Cast: Francine Everett, Don Wilson and Katherine Moore
Film / Drama / Black Cast
An all-black Caribbean island resort welcomes flashy dancer Gertie La Rue, forced to perform in this remote spot because she two-timed Al, her Harlem lover and backer, once too often. As Gertie amuses herself by dazzling the local men with her sex appeal, sanctimonious Mr. Christian schemes to either reform her or have her thrown off the island. On opening night, her sensuous performance exceeds Christian's worst fears, but more serious trouble awaits.
