Number of Times Seen – 1 (21 Aug 2020)

Brief Synopsis – An all black regiment in the US Army stationed in Southern Texas deal with their training and racial issues during the height of World War I in 1917.

Bottom Line – Really enjoyable film that is able to show the various difficulties that Black soldiers had to deal with while training to fight overseas during World War I. The story is told like many other films dealing with training of cadets, but the added aspects of racial tension add so much to the story. The cast is largely unknown, but that helps make things feel even more realistic in the way that the story unfolds and is depicted here. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – One filming location is in historic downtown Salisbury, NC. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
