saw her in 'Carmen' on late night cable.... was so completely enamored and infatuated that I hauled my sleeping boyfriend out of bed, used TiVo to rewind and made him watch the WHOLE THING. He loves her too now...

She was a really wonderful actress. I love "Carmen Jones," and it's wonderful to see her receive all the recognition she deserves.

Dorothy Dandridge was a beautiful woman and had a tragic life. She hardly represents a 'black' or 'African American' woman though- when I see pictures of her I always think she's Latina OR white. I suppose Hollywood at that time wasn't ready to truly accept people of 'colour' and only felt comfortable promoting/embracing the whitest of all the many talented non-white actresses :(

After seeing Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, where Halle Berry played the lovely Dorothy,I have been fascinated with her life. She was so talented and beautiful.

I see the resemblance now between Dorothy and Halle Berry (who played her in that mini series a few years ago). Absolutely stunning - her features are gorgeous.

So glad you like the post! Every time I look at Dorothy Dandridge, I'm amazed by her beauty, and then saddened that she had such a sad and painful life. I really do think that if she had been born a few decades later, she would have been one of the biggest stars in film. Rosefleur, you bring up a good point. Dorothy Dandridge died of an overdose, but it isn't clear whether it was suicide or if she'd been poisoned.
