Godfrey Cambridge was a black African American actor/comedian from the 1950s to the 1970s. He started with some minor roles in movies like The Last Angry Man, and then got a big break performing stand-up comedy on TV shows, and then won a Tony Award in 1962 in "Purlie Victorious". He appeared in many movies, but is probably best remembered for "Watermelon Man", where he is a white bigot who wakes up to discover that he has become a black man! Cambridge was scheduled to play the lead of Idi Amin in "Victory at Entebbe" in 1976, but sadly, he had a heart attack and passed away. He was only 43.
