Does anyone remember when Lenny Henry “whited up” for a film?

Nope? Didn’t think so. Here’s a reminder:

'True Identity' (1991) - In order to escape from the mob, an African-American man (Lenny Henry, right) must disguise himself as a white man. Same man ends up 19 years later, strangely, facing the cameras at Holiday Inns across England.
