Born for Hard Luck - --- Arthur "Peg Leg Sam" Jackson

Peg Leg Sam Jackson

As seen in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's romantic Gallic comedy Amelie which swept the European Film Awards for 2001 winning the Best Film, Best Director, and the Best Cinematographer Awards.

A portrait of the last Black medicine-show performer, Arthur "Peg Leg Sam" Jackson, with brilliant harmonica songs, tales of hoboing, buck dances, and an authentic live medicine-show performance filmed at a North Carolina county fair in 1972.

Between the Civil War and World War II, many such gifted and restless young black musicians found careers in the traveling patent-medicine shows, a favorite entertainment in the rural and small-town South. They sang and recited comic routines and danced to attract a crowd for the pitchman and his sales of wonder-cure "snake oil."
