The Kingfish in Drag! What a fine, funny film!
8 July 2002 | by Sleepy-17See all my reviews

Tim Moore was a comic genius who I presume got his start if vaudeville and later portrayed the Kingfish in Amos and Andy. In this flick he plays a transvestite without any of the corny moralistic excuses used in Doubtfire or Tootsie. As with most of these African-American films from the 40's, there's great music, beautiful women, outrageous comedy. Don't miss this one!
