Murder in Harlem

Streaming Media


From the CUL Digital Collection: "Henry Glory, a young writer and law student, is selling his own novel door to door (one of movie director Oscar Micheaux's own practices). He is directed to see a young lady who may wish to buy one. In a mix up, he meets another girl, Claudia Vance, and promptly falls in love with her. In the complications that follow, Glory is told that Ms. Vance is wicked, and he leaves town, not knowing that it is a case of mistaken identity. Three years later, as a successful lawyer, Glory is contacted by Claudia to defend her brother, who has been framed on a murder charge. The confession of a porter clears the brother of the charge, and Glory and Claudia finally get together."
