Harry Belafonte and Dorothy Dandridge
There are certain movies that, quite frankly, I never shut up about… The Quiet Man, Anatomy of a Murder, Rio Bravo, Carmen Jones, Spencer’s Mountain, Jezebel, Casablanca, Key Largo.. there are others but this group includes the ones I probably give the most traction.
Unfortunately, I’ve found that the one most people I talk to haven’t seen is Carmen Jones. Frustrating because it’s one of the best!
The performances by Harry Belafonte, Dorothy Dandridge, Pearl Bailey, and Olga James (I love this lady so much!) are particularly memorable and will take your breath completely away. Please see this wonderful film as soon as possible if you haven’t yet.
