The Learning Tree (1969)
Worth a lot of journalists' ink at the time and selected to the National Film Registry in 1989, famed photographer Gordon Parks' adaptation of his own semi-autobiographical novel about growing up in Kansas marked the first time a black was allowed to direct a major studio production. Parks would soon make his big-screen mark with 1971's popular and influential Shaft — while 1976's never-on-video Leadbelly, about folk singer Huddie Ledbetter, is underrated and deserves a home release.
