I saw 'Me and My Girl' in London in 1990. Story is about a poor cockney guy in England finding out he is the illegitimate son of a rich dead guy and is at the estate on a weekend with all the snobby relatives, set in the 1930s, I think. Lead actor was black, and was perfect for the part. I did not know the story, so at first not sure if it was his obnoxious tacky plaid suit the snobs reacted to or the color of his skin, or both. But the show was written back in the 30s, so I assume part meant for white man. But the actor was so good, after the first few seconds, I think no one saw his color, and was rooting for him to win over the snobs and get the inheritance.
