I am interested in films which have been remade with black characters.
in roles originally cast with whites, for example BLACULA/DRACULA.
Richard Brooks's novel THE BRICK FOXHOLE, for example, became the
film CROSSFIRE, and the gay character became a Jew (and the story
about anti-semitism instead of homophobia).
Can any of the netters think of similar cases dealing with African-
Americans -- i.e. in which a remake or retelling cast blacks
in roles which originally featured whites or some other ethnicity?
Similarly, Can anyone remember the T.V. remake of the Defiant Ones with
Phyllisha Rashad, in which the male charachters are recast as females.
(while preserving the color differences)
