Nina Mae McKinney fans

Recommended Posts

Nina Mae was vivacious, sexy and talented. Unfortunately for her, while there was room in Hollywood for female black performers to play maids and other stereotypical roles, there wouldn't be any for someone like McKinney at the time. It wouldn't be until Lena Horne in the '40s that a black woman was allowed to be sexy on screen.

 

Aside from King Vidor's Applause, McKinney has been shown on TCM frequently in the past in a 1932 musical short, Pie, Pie Blackbird, in which she's a bit of a knockout, with a great jazzy singing voice and sexy glamour to spare. And dig those earrings!

In Dorothy Mackail's Safe In Hell, McKinney also has a fairly visible role as the hotel operator in Mackail's Caribbean hideaway. TCM showed that movie twice in 2011, but not since then.
