Putney Swope
Dark satire in which the token black man on the executive board of an advertising firm is accidentally put in charge. Renaming the business “Truth and Soul, Inc.”, he replaces the tight regime of monied white ad men with his militant brothers. Soon afterwards, however, the power that comes with its position takes its toll on Putney (Comedy)
