Harlow, "Hold Your Man" and the black and white ministers


Recommended Posts

Attention to TCM: If you can, on March 22 during your Jean Harlow-Clark Gable marathon, please show the separate footage of the two versions of "Hold Your Man" -- one featuring a black minister, the other a white minister; the latter footage was used in a version for southern U.S. markets. More on this can be found at http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/174666.html. George Reed portrayed the black minister, Henry B. Walthall (yes, the same actor who portrayed Ben Cameron in "The Birth Of A Nation," and a character actor by the time this was made in 1933) the white one.


During its 2006 SUTS Carole Lombard salute, TCM showed the ending of "Vigil In The Night" made expressly for European markets in addition to the "usual" one, and there's no reason it can't do likewise here if the "white minister" footage exists..
