Abstract: The Harlem Renaissance was the time of the Cotton Club. James Haskins, a professor in the University of Florida English department, wrote the book and also worked on the film as a consultant. Haskins is interviewed and relates the difficulties in getting the film produced. Two black producers went to Hollywood to try to obtain ten million dollars for the production but could find no backers. Later Robert Evans and Francis Coppola bought the option and changed the film. Haskins states that he would have had more fact and less fiction in the film.
