A Fool and His Money

Based on the adage, “a fool and his money will soon be parted,” Sam Jones only has one thing on his mind: winning the desires of his well-off beloved. The recently discovered film is both one of the earliest extended narratives featuring an all-Black cast and one of the earliest works directed by a woman.
