Films by Waeks, starring blacks, aimed for (lie nlnck market Is a highly i n the entertainment field. How did it come about? Are the pictures truly representative of the black experience? Fol- lowing is IKc lirst of two arti- cles on the black film phe- nomenon. By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) In the current film Shaft's Big Score, the black private detective hero scorns a New York police inves- tigator, also black: "My mother told me to stay away from black honkies with big flat feet." Five years ago, such a put down of whites and blacks who work for the while establish- ment might have caused out- rage. Today such scenes are com- mon. And not merely in low- budget exploitation films. Films made by blacks and aimed pri- marily at the black market are being financed on sizable budg- ets by major studios. This is the result of a black revolution in the movie indus- try. Film companies have dis- covered belatedly that millions of dollars can be made by aim- ing movies primarily at the big-city black audience. If the movies contain enough quality, they also will draw whites. Hence, a bonanza such as MGM produced last year with Shaft. The film grossed mil- lion in the United States and Canada. It was MGM's only big hit in 1971. TOOK A LONG TIME The negro's advent to film prominence was a long time coming. During the earliest years of movies, the black was por- trayed as cither servile, as in various versions of Uncle Tom's or lazy, as in two 1910 and Sambo. The black as villain was ex- ploited by D. W. Griffith in the 1915 Birth of Notion. Griffith was so astonished by the outcry of prejudice that he made the epic Intolerance in his own de- fence. The talkie period brought some all black films: Hallelu- jah, by MGM in 1929; The Green Pastures, Warner Broth- ers, 1936; Stormy Weather, 20th Fox, 1943; Cabin in the MGM, 1943; Carmen Jones, Preminger, 1954; Porgy and Bess, Goldwyn, 1959; Raisin in the Sun, Columbia, 1961. None of these films was a fin- ancial success, and producers over the years adopted the maxim that "colored pictures don't Bell. WORK SCARCE There was scant work for black actors during (he first 50 years of film history. A few be- came well known, largely in roles as menials: Clarence Muse, Louise Beavers, Bill Rob- inson, Ethel Waters, Eddie (Rochester) Anderson. Hattie McDaniel won an Oscar for her role as Mammy in Gone with the Wind. Others were relegated to roles in which they appeared incredi- bly lazy or frightened of ghosts, Siepin Fetchit, Willie Best, Far- ina of the Our Gang comedies, and an actor who was called Sleep 'n1 Eat. Paul Robeson played a few leading roles in the 1930s, mostly in non-Hollywood films such as The Emperor Jones, and Sanders of the River. Sidney Poiter was the star SOUTHERN ALBERTA THEATRES who started the black revolution in films. The Nassau-born actor had been in movies since No Way Out in 1950, but he seemed des- tined for billing under such stars as Tony Curtis and Rock Hudson. Then in JSG3 he starred in Lillies of the Field, and won the Oscar as best actor. WAS IN MONEYMAKERS He later appeared in such mo- neymakers as A Patch of Blue, To Sir with Love, In the Heat of the Night and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Always he portrayed a successful black in the white world. "The industry discovered something from Poitier's says Jim Brown, the pro footballer who became a black film star. 'Over half the parlon- age came from blacks in the big cities. "That pointed out two things to the producers: that the indus- try needed some black stars; and that dignity, was needed in the portrayal of blacks on the screen."

TONIGHT ONLY Hospital engineers favor strike VICTORIA (CP) Operat- ing engineers at 27 British Co- lumbia hospitals have voted in favor of strike action by a mar gin ol about 80 per cent. Ed Callan, international rep- resentative of the International Union of Operating Engineers, said, after releasing Ihe result of the vote, that he would now suggest to union representa- tives that another attempt be made to bring the B.C. Hospi- tals Association back to the bargaining table. "I will suggest that we ask them to sit down and negotiate again if not, we mill have no alternative but to serve 12- hour strike Mr. Callan said. "We are not prepared to go before the B.C. Mediation Com- mission. But are prepared to go before an independent ar- bitrator with the understand- ing that his report would be binding on both parties." Talks between the union.and the association began six months ago. A provincial gov- ernment mediator finished his term, about two weeks ago and filed a report that there had been no progress. The union is seeking a 12-per- cent wage increase for third- class engineers while the asso- ciation has offered a 6-25-per cent hike over one year. A third class engineer now earns ?834.25 a month.

Black pictures helped solve a crisis for theatre owners. With whites moving to the suburbs, massive old theatres in the cen- rtal cilics seemed doomed to decay and destruction. The lure of black films began filling up those theatres with Negroes who remained in the cities. Film companies began to see the need of black directors to interpret the black experience.

Melvin Van Peebles directed Watermelon Man for Columbia, then made Sweet Sweet Black on his own for an immense profit.
