A Rage in Harlem

Smooth operator from Mississippi (Givens) comes to Harlem to unload a stash of gold, and hooks up with a naive, nerdy mama's boy (Whitaker) who sees himself as her protector. Earnest attempt to recreate author Chester Himes' 1950s Harlem milieu doesn't quite come together in spite of some good performances. Can't hold a candle to COTTON COMES TO HARLEM (though the cop characters Gravedigger Jones and Coffin Ed reappear in this story). VHS & DVD
