Directed by Carl Reiner | 1979

With Steve Martin, Bernadette Peters, Catlin Adams

“I was born a poor black child…” announces Steve Martin in the first line of this classic, very much of its era, but commendably risky comic take on Southern racial mores. He plays a dull-witted man raised by a black family who sets out into the world to make something of himself—but first he must accept the fact that he’s white.
