Amazing Grace (1974)
Moms Mabley, billed as "The Funniest Woman in The World," and one of the most successful African-American comedians of all-time, brings her biting humor to the big screen in a starring role as "Amazing Grace." Moms Mabley is Grace Teasdale Grimes, a Baltimore, Maryland widow who discovers that the local mayoral election is a front for pilfering funds from her neighborhood by the incumbent mayor and his cronies. Stirred to activism, Grace, with the aid of her neighbors, rallies the community to thwart the self-serving politicians in this rollicking comedy with a social bent directed by Stan Lathan (Beat Street). Moms Mabley is given comic support by veterans Butterfly McQueen ("Prissy" in Gone With The Wind), Slappy White (TV's Sanford and Son) and Stepin Fetchit (Dimples, Bend of the River).
