Amazing Grace is a 1974 light-hearted comedy featuring comedian Moms Mabley, playing the title role of Grace Teasdale Grimes. Grace is a widow who influences the local mayoral election in Baltimore, Maryland after she discovers her somewhat slow-witted neighbor is being used to run for mayor by shady politicians and the incumbent mayor to further his own self-serving reelection efforts.

Grace knows the politicians have no interest in the betterment of the neighborhood and are only interested in getting their hands on the money that comes into it. She organizes some of the people in the community and together they devise a plan to thwart the crooked politician’s schemes.

Mabley appeared in the film, along with veteran actors Butterfly McQueen and Stepin Fetchit a year before her death at the age of 81.

The film is not associated with the popular Christian hymn [1]
