Movie Reviews

An Original American Beauty
C. Avery | Houston, TX | 04/30/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful dvd to add to your collection. It's basically a 1 hr documentary on the life and career of the 1st African American woman to be nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress. If you have an attention span comprable to a fish, don't buy it, but if you're genuinely interested in learning about an exeptional trailblazer (in her own right), this is the dvd to purchase. Respect is finally being rightfully given to this amazing woman, and she definitely deserved it."
WELL APPRECIATED!!!!!!!

"If you can appreciate and love Dorothy Dandridge for the icon she is, you will definitely love this product. It is a well put together biography with many important people featured in it to vouch for my review. Her beauty, pain, and success are all captured in 60 mins. of this pure entertaining saga. ENJOY!"
