Even as minstrelsy was practiced on radio and television in series like "Two Black Crows" and Amos 'n' Andy, popular films towards the end of the 30s and 40s tended to locate blackface nostalgically, as a form from the distant past.

Such is the case for films such as Babes in Arms (1939), Holiday Inn (1941) and The Minstrel Man (1944), the last of which features a revival show reuniting father and daughter. In this film, blackface is represented as a "mask", supporting a plotline involving hidden identity, secrecy and the awaited reunion.
