Robert Townsend

1. –  Denzel  Washington,  The Mighty Quinn,  1989. It is due to duff scripts like this Caribbean thriller  (starting life with Townsend as the police chief, finally as his boyhood  pal accused of murder) that turned Townsend to writer-directing his Hollywood Shuffle, Meteor Man, etc.

2. – Wesley Snipes, To Wong Fu, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar, 1995. The subject was  drag. So was the  film. Townsend’s own scripts were way funnier
