Superbly made film about people dealing with the unexpected realities of life and learning to show the love they feel inside. All characters were shown progressing realistically through their part in the death of Morris Bird III, the 17-year-old lead in the story.

This old African American film from the 1970's is set in Los Angeles 1948. Jimmie Walker plays the role of Morris Bird, a high school athlete with great basketball skills who finds out after scoring a winning basket that he has leukemia. His girlfriend played by Debbie Allen is a supporting actress and the female that played in "Good Times" as the one who robbed the Evans family plays Morris' sister. (I don't know her name and I wish it were in the credits) James Earl Jones plays the aloof father of Morris. By today's standards this movie is slow, however I enjoyed the movie because the props were real. African American really did dress as the actors did in those days and the rooms were decorated to represent the times. There is one scene where the actors are in this is awful mint green room and back in those days rooms really were that color. Surprisingly many in the cast went on to have great careers and a few others did not. This movie is worth a watch if you want to reminisce.
