Throwback Thursday Fyc: Diahann Carroll in Claudine (1974)

22 May 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Film Experience time travels so consistently between the now, the future, the distant past and the recent past that Throwback Thursday, that grand internet tradition, hasn't meant much. But then I chanced upon this old Fyc and a lightbulb appeared reflecting off my bald head "Throwback Thursday... The Oscar Campaigns"

Diahann Carroll in Claudine (1974)

click to enlarge

Diahann, deglamming to play a welfare mother in Harlem as Many of the critical blurbs highlights, lost the Oscar to Ellen Burstyn in one of the all time greatest Best Actress rosters. The blurbs are interesting time capsules, both in the tell tale signs of 'this is still what people like for "bests" and in uniquely "holy hell" ways. Consider this provocative bit from the Gannett Syndicate:

...the first three dimensional portrait of a black woman."

I'm sure that Diana Ross and Cicely Tyson, both nominated two years prior would not approve! »

TV Review: ‘A Day Late and a Dollar Short’

17 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Whoopi Goldberg wears so many hats it’s easy to forget that she can be a pretty fine actress when she gets the opportunity. Such is the case with “A Day Late and a Dollar Short,” a crazily soapy Lifetime movie so steeped in melodrama that the two responses are to either roll one’s eyes or to happily succumb — and keep a box of tissues handy. Cast to the hilt, this Lifetime movie is the network’s latest to feature a predominantly African-American ensemble, in practical terms wedding the network’s older-female niche to a demographic that’s often underserved on TV in regard to serious drama.

Based on the bestseller by Terry McMillan (“How Stella Got Her Groove Back”), the movie stars Goldberg as Viola Price, the ailing matriarch of a big, fractious, squabbling family. That includes her estranged husband (Ving Rhames) and four grown kids, played by Anika Noni Rose, »
