Dorothy Dandridge
Dorothy is one of my favorite Old Hollywood stars, she was beautiful, and talented. Her life had it's triumphant moments ( First Black woman Lead Oscar Nomination) and it's tragedies ( mental retarded daughter, fail marriages, slump movie career and drug addiction).

Seductive Dorothy in one of her best musiscal performances(circa 1955)! She was so ravishing that during this even Bing Crosby said with a melt 'she's fine' while introducing her on early national tv.

Carmen Jones and Sundown Screencaps


Dorothy is very underrated in the beauty and acting depts, She was a very good actress and pretty as Eva Gardner, Elizabeth Taylor among other popular old Hollywood beauties.

Well unfortunately she was around at a time when blacks just weren't going to be that successful,sad b/c there was such real talent & beauty back than...but she wasn't alone in that respect. But thank god for the film "Introducing..." b/c she otherwise would've continued to be largely forgotten. BTW,the last screen cap is actually from the '51 film "Tarzan's Peril".

Dvd Beaver has that screencap with the movie Sundown, Dorothy was in that movie a few minutes with the beautiful Gene Tierney.
