Sambo was a film series produced by Siegmund Lubin in the United States from 1909 until 1911. Meeting with success the Rastus series succeeded it.[1][2] The films followed on the success of British author Helen Bannerman's 1899 children's book The Story of Little Black Sambo and an era of enormous popularity for minstrel performances and songs including earlier films in the "coon" tradition.[3] The films have been described as farces.[4]
