Western Movie Matinee – The Bronze Buckaroo
The Bronze Buckaroo (1938)
Herb Jeffries, billed by director Jed Buell as “Black America’s First Singing Cowboy,” rode onto the silver screen to provide the flourishing all-black movie houses their own cowboy movie star. Filmed on a blacks-only dude ranch in Victorville, California, Buell’s production provided a classic B-Western in a West without whites. Appropriate for ages 12+.
