Rating:
PG
That's the Way of the World is a musical drama film written by Robert Lipsyte and directed by Sig Shore. This film, which was released in 1975 by Sig Shore Productions, deals with racial prejudices in the American music industry during the 1970's. Respected music producer Coleman Buckmaster (Harvey Keitel) believes that he has found a potential goldmine in "The Group", an African-American band. However, his superiors instruct him to focus his energies on a white ensemble called "The Pages", because they believe this band will sell more records. Band members Velour (Cynthia Bostick), Gary (Jimmy Boyd) and Franklin (Bert Parks) are wholesome, respectable, and non-threatening to the label's white consumer base. Buckmaster's boss, Carlton James (Ed Nelson) feels that the group will appeal to "old-fashioned American family values", but Buckmaster thinks that The Pages are cheesy and uninspired. Forced by his contract to promote The Pages against his will, Buckmaster schemes for a way to protect his integrity and find a way to continue promoting The Group.moreless
