Movie Reviews

Introducing Dorothy Dandridge
Arnita D. Brown | USA | 12/31/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was very heart wrenching, yet it was very beautiful. Dorothy Dandrige was so talented and beautiful, and she soared in the music and film industry. This movie shows how she suffered through cruelties that eventually wound down to her death at the early age of 41. A sad story beautifully told.

Love it!

"This is a wonderful movie (quality and all) that has a beautiful message attached not to spoil the movie but once you have seen this it will become very clear what life is all about. Given that this story is one that is very near and dear to me, I must say that this is a powerful movie and the information that is presented is one that will not be forgotten."
