Black Brigade This well done TV Movie, starring Richard Pryor, Rosie Greer, Billy Dee Williams, and Stephen Boyd, depicts racist attitudes toward black soldiers in World War Two. Richard Pryor gives a fine performance as does the rest of the cast. Producer: Aaron Spelling This relatively short war movie (aka “Carter’s Army) has all the elements that make such a movie good: it brings out the personality of individuals and their personal struggle with their situation. Furthermore, superimposed on the scenario of men coping with being in war, which is always something deep, is the issue of racial conflict between those men (the captain being a white southerner leading a detail of black soldiers and their lieutenant). As the end of the story draws near, it becomes a cliffhanger, building to a climax, during which the men that have survived that far manifest themselves… I have heard some people criticize some details of this production, but in the big picture I believe those details are insignificant. The story, as a whole, is very profound and moving. It would be fitting IMHO to give them all medals: the actors and the characters that they portrayed. Finally, although from 1970, there is no profanity or graphic violence, perhaps because it was a TV production. It is, though, as any good war movie should be, emotionally wrenching. You may find yourself wishing that some loose ends were tied up, but perhaps the most important ones were. Thumbs up, 5 stars. ;
