Beautiful, graceful, bright eyed Cathryn Caviness gave a dramatic, heartfelt, moving performance in Spencer Williams, "Blood of Jesus" in 1941. The movie was about religion, a woman who is between evil and good, she heeds the consequences of the two and in the end finds the best way to live her life.
Cathryn's performance in Blood of Jesus has moved many with her natural earthly personality and various feelings towards difference incidents without being overly dramatic. Blood of Jesus is one of the most seen movie of Black Cinema. Cathryn was an exceptional actress who should have done more but we're fortunate that she was able to show her acting ability in one movie that will last a lifetime. Most actresses and actors don't get a chance to show their versatility that Cathryn showed in one movie.
