A Man's Duty

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki






Resubmitted. Strange and somewhat outrageous rejection. Clearly notable and historic as the sources establish. FloridaArmy (talk) 23:30, 15 May 2021 (UTC)
  • The film clearly passes the Film criteria. Historically significant. A 1920 feature film with an African American cast from one of the most important African American film companies and starring a prominent actor. It's shocking that any Wikipedia editor would deem this subject unworthy of inclusion. FloridaArmy (talk) 13:29, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

A Man's Duty was a 1919 Lincoln Motion Picture Company film.[1] It starred Clarence A. Brooks.[2] It was advertised as featuring an "All Colored Cast".[3] The film's story is about rivals fighting over a woman.[4] Harry A. Gant directed.[5]

Brooks debuted in the film company's first film, the 1916 short The Realization of a Negro's Ambition.[6] He served as Secretary of the Lafayette Players. A Man's Duty was made after George P. Johnson left the struggling film production company that endured loss of business due to World War I and Spanish Flu.[7]
