Ten Minutes To Live (1932)
























Starring:



Storyline
A movie producer offers a nightclub singer a role in his latest film, but all he really wants to do is bed her. She knows but accepts anyway. Meanwhile, a patron at the club gets a note saying that she'll soon get another note, and that she will be killed ten minutes after that.

Resisting the stagebound atmosphere of The Exile, Micheaux found ways to shoot a talking picture on location, without cumbersome and expensive audio recording equipment. He did this by making one of his characters deaf and having much dialog spoken off-camera (so it could be dubbed later).
