The Project

Our current film, Ghost Dancer, the BUDDY BRADLEY story is a BIOPIC on Buddy Bradley, who was the famous dancer behind many Famous Hollywood Legends and Best Friend and Teacher to the one and only Legendary Fred Astaire and Actress Lucille Ball. And he just so happened to be Black.

Buddy worked on several films in America and 12 films in London as the Dance Choreographer, but still never received the credit he deserved. 

Remember, this was the 1920 - 1930's. Buddy was popular and well known in the industry but not as Famous as he wanted. He was also not Brave and Foolish during that time as well, since he was having an Affair with the New York Mayor at that time Jimmy Walker's wife and ex showgirl Betty Compton.

When Jimmy found out it was World War 2 before the actual start of World War 2. Jimmy had his Mob friend and owner of the Cotton Club Owney Madden have his goons beat Buddy to near death and continue to do so until Buddy moved to London for a few years.

PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS A TRUE STORY

James John Walker, often known as Jimmy Walker and colloquially as Beau James (June 19, 1881 – November 18, 1946), was mayor of New York City from 1926 to 1932. A flamboyant politician, he was a liberal Democrat and part of the powerful Tammany Hall machine. During a corruption scandal he was forced to resign.

Owen Vincent Madden, known as Owney Madden and nicknamed "The Killer" (December 18, 1891 – April 24, 1965) was a leading underworld figure in Manhattan, most notable for his involvement in organized crime during Prohibition. He also ran the famous Cotton Club and was a leading boxing promoter in the 1930s.[1]

Madden and his former gang rival turned partner, Big Frenchy De Mange (George Fox DeMange), began to open or acquire some of the flashiest speakeasies and nightclubs of the era, most notably the legendary Cotton Club.

Madden purchased the Club Deluxe from former Heavyweight Boxing Champion Jack Johnson and reopened it a year later. Nightclub patrons flooded into Harlem from downtown Manhattan to catch performers such as Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson and the Nicholas Brothers. Madden and his partners, Big Bill and Big Frenchy, also muscled their way into a piece of the exclusive Stork Club, where the influential gossip columnist Walter Winchell held court and everyone who was anyone wanted to see and be seen.  Madden  also gained recognition for his revenge tactics and payoffs of City Hall.[4]
