With the assistance of my colleague, David Parker, here are some
additional titles remade as black-cast films.
Anna Lucasta (1958 remake of 1949 film)
Body and Soul (1981 remake of 1947 film)
Barefoot in the Park (tv series from movie)
Cool Breeze = The Asphalt Jungle
Up Tight = The Informer
The Lost Man = Odd Man Out
Abby = The Exorcist
Norman, Is That You? utilized a black cast when adapting the play
for the screen.
Contrary to an earlier posting, Black Shampoo is not a remake of
Shampoo; rather, a hair stylist attacks crime on the Sunset Strip
using a chainsaw.
Hope this is of some help.
