If you are lover of Diana Ross and Richard Pryor and would love to own a great copy of Lady Sings The Blues here is your spot.
Diana Ross stars as legendary blues singer Billie Holiday in this biopic that chronicles her rise and fall. It begins with her late childhood, a stint as a prostitute, those early days as a blues singer, her marriages, and her drug addiction. Overly glossy and lacking depth, this is worth seeing only for the performances. Diana Ross was nominated for an Oscar for her acting debut. A dynamo with sparkling screen presence, she realistically conveys the confusion and unhappiness that caused Holiday so much grief. Her performance is almost matched by romantic interest Billy Dee Williams. Watch for Richard Pryor, who is most powerful in a dramatic supporting role as the piano player in a brothel. --Rochelle O'Gorman
Diana Ross and Billy Dee Williams perform their roles well in this film. It was Richard Pryor who made me cry though. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Janice Sims
