Mr Bones and Mr Jones

Uses a black and white minstrel show format to attack WASP values. Johnny Jones pulls himself together just in time and just enough to pass his exams but as an adult becomes so obssessed with work that his son opts for a different lifestyle - a lifestyle like that of the "lazy darkie" Mr Bones, who, convinced by Johnny's material success, prompts his own son to study hard.
