The Broken Violin (1928 film)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

All of Oscar Micheaux's films are notable. The Library of Congress and The Crisis newspaper are independent sources. FloridaArmy (talk) 13:23, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
I found a review on Newspapers.com. [1]. However, I was surprised to find that this is all that exists considering that the director is well-known. I think we need two reviews to establish notability. I agree with Perryprog that the sources in the article are not independent. Scorpions13256 (talk) 07:21, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
