518    Originally produced by Villon Films in 1949. 
520    A simple story of a country lad who comes to the city to 
       look for work, takes some knocks while adjusting to city 
       life, but comes out on top when his singing talent is 
       discovered. In 1949, two expatriate Britishers, producer 
       Eric Rutherford and director Donald Swanson, made African 
       Jim. It is a simple story of a country lad who comes to 
       the city to look for work, takes some knocks while 
       adjusting to city life, but comes out on top when his 
       singing talent is discovered. Using musicians from the 
       townships (it discovered South Africa's great singing star
       Dolly Rathebe), the film was a sensation for black 
       audiences, who had never before seen their own heroes on 
       screen. Its value as a historical document cannot be 
       overstated; these images from the past reflect a vibrant 
       township culture that was soon to be destroyed by 
       apartheid. Directed by Donald Swanson.
