Introducing Dorothy Dandridge (1999)

Directed by
Martha Coolidge

The tragic story of Dorothy Dandridge (Halle Berry) and her rollercoaster career: from club circuit to big screen success and finally to her drug-induced demise and the suicide rumours. A love affair with director Otto Preminger helped her career, but later probably led her to some wrong decisions. Well-acted and sensitive on issues of race in showbiz.
