Unwelcome Matt

In this gruesome and moody film shocker
These two must elude a loon stalker
At their plight they're surprised
Though they might have surmised
They were screwed when they viewed his big knocker.

Top: Oscar 'Dutch' Hendrian, Leslie Banks, Noble Johnson, Fay Wray and Joel McCrea in The Most Dangerous Game (Irving Pichel, Ernest B. Schoedsack; 1932). Noble Johnson plays Ivan, henchman to Count Zaroff. From the IMDb: African-American movie actor and producer Noble Johnson was born on April 18, 1881, in Marshall, Missouri. In 1916 he founded his own studio to produce what would be called "race films", movies made for the African-American audience, which were ignored by the "mainstream" film industry. The Lincoln Motion Picture Co., which was in existence until 1921, was an all-black company, the first to produce movies portraying African-Americans as real people instead of as racist caricatures.
