Breaking News! Just added to this collection; Screen Test Auditions for the rolls of Andy and the Kingfish ! In 1950, Spencer Williams auditioned for the roll of his life; Andy Brown. You can also see the screen test for the guy that didn't get the job. There are even white guys wearing blackface auditioning for the rolls of the "Kingfish" and "Andy Brown"!
Most of what you see online is intentional blurring, not restoration! The comparisons are not real. It is easy to blur something that is already clear but difficult, time consuming and expensive to improve a low quality print. Below is "Jewelry Store Robbery" which was one of the lowest quality episodes we have restored. We preformed digital restorations in 2001 and again in 2015 using the latest technology.
Tricky advertising is funny when the "Kingfish" does it but not so funny when you are the victim of deception. Take your time, do your homework, know what you are buying!
Amos and Andy is one of the funniest and most beloved television and radio shows of all time. Alvin Childress (Amos), Tim Moore (Kingfish) and Spencer Williams Jr. (Andy) were three of the finest comics of all time. Who can forget hearing "Holy Mackerel Andy!," and " I'se regusted, Andy!" The raw talent and humor that they exuded touched us all, and they will always be fondly remembered. Perhaps someday the networks will end their blacklisting of this popular radio and TV show. The truth is, Amos 'N Andy was no more demeaning to African Americans than The Beverly Hillbillies was demeaning to southern whites.
