In an attempt to improvise the "walk" of a homeless indigent, Diana Ross discreetly placed an orange between her skirted thighs and proceeded to hobble along on cue. The effort required to keep the concealed orange in place without using her hands, effected a gait so uncanny that Ross's director, Larry Elikann, later quizzed her about how she walked the "walk." According to Ross, herself, as related to the audience on Inside the Actors Studio (1994) (19 February 2006), she never did disclose the simplicity of her little ruse. See more »
I'm gonna get through this for what? To be what? Just less, and then less, and then less and less... I don't wanna end up on a back ward somewhere. I'd rather be nothing, you know...

Diana Ross gives an incredible and very realistic portrait of a woman who lives with mental illness and apparently seems to defeat it. I found the movie well acted--by all its cast members---both informative and entertainingly educational in a good sense---that the educational aspects are subtle and not like a documentary. This is a dramatic and excellent movie that shows Diana Ross as a talented convincing actress. It shows that not everyone is accepting of mental illness--she gets dumped by a boyfriend who cannot handle the fact that she has survived mental illness. Highly recommended for the entire family and for those who have family members who are afflicted with mental illness, not to mention the many fans of Diana Ross, the actress in this case.
