Gladys Knight's film debut
18 November 2003 | by (Decatur, Ga) – See all my reviews

Pipe Dreams, a 1976 motion picture stars R&B, soul singer Gladys Knight. Knight plays an Atlanta, Ga transplant who is offered a job on an Alaska pipeline. The movie also stars Barry Hankerson, Knights real life husband at the time as her promiscuous husband in this film, Wayne Tippet, a young Sally Kirkland, and Altovise Davis, wife of the late Sammy Davis Jr.

Pipe Dreams suffers from a script that lacks direction and a director not knowing where to take this film. Pipe Dreams should have just focused on the love/hate relationship between Gladys Knight and Barry Hankerson with added drama by Wayne Tippet who plays the pipeline company magnet Mickey Thompson, who is very controlling and manipulating of a female prostitute who ultimately takes her own life in this film, after hash words from Wayne Tippet.

The acting by Gladys Knight is surprisingly good, that is more than I can say about some of the musicians who have unfortunately caught the acting bug today.

I give this movie ** fair. It you are a Gladys Knight admirer you will like this film. Four years ago I saw this movie on video. I can't say if it is on video today.
