Storyline

Unsuccessful gambler 'Dollar Bill' Burton lives in a crummy New York basement room with old friend Bob and a new roommate, friendly blues singer 'Alabama' Lee. But, tired of being broke, Dollar Bill gets more steady employment...doing illegal errands for gangster Bad Boy George. The now prosperous Bill ignores pretty, adoring Etta and takes up with sultry singer Regina. Will Bill's way of life catch up with him? Will his upright friends be more successful in the end? All-black cast. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

The title is the bast part of the movie
19 February 2002 | by psteierSee all my reviews

Notable only as one of the last 'race movies', made with a more-or-less all black cast and aimed at segregated theaters.

Unlike many race movies, singing and dancing doesn't really compensate for the quickie production values. The basement apartment set though has to be seen to be believed.

Despite the title, the sin is rather tame by modern standards.
