Once upon a time hollywood press conf.

The Joker Coming October.

THE LIFE OF DANCER Set in 1940s old Hollywood, during the height of US racial tensions, Dr. Prince C. Spencer was the last surviving original member of the famous tap dancing group, THE FOUR STEP BROTHERS. They were the FIRST Black Dancers to receive a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Dr. Spencer sits and recaps his time performing all over the world with Maceo Anderson, Freddie James, Al Williams and Sylvester Johnson. They were renowned for their acrobatic, lightening fast tap dancing, and were the elite opening act amongst royalty, movie stars, TV shows and socialites. Their narrow road to success was full of applause and praise, yet they still suffered racial discrimination. They were conditionally accepted and were ONLY allowed to enter thru the rear, eat in their dressing room and entertain the white audience. But when Jerry Lewis learned that "his guys" were being treated unfairly, he stepped in and made sure "it was fixed". As years passed, Dr. Spencer retired from dancing and agreed to manage the affairs of the late, controversial comedian, Redd Foxx. Unfortunately and to no avail, while on the set, Foxx suffered a heart attack, collapsed to the floor and was rushed to the hospital. Foxx later died at the age of 68. It is undeniable, that Dr. Spencer shared recognisable super star qualities with current celebrities, such as Jaime Foxx and Sean 'Diddy' Combs.  Dr. Spencer was a tap legend, a successful businessman and a forgotten entertainment trailblazer whose life story of perseverance transcends to the global message of seeking racial equality.
