What is included in this DVD is good but there's really not enough to satisfy Dandridge fans. There has to be a lot more film of Dorothy Dandridge singing in nightclubs and on TV available somewhere.

The producers of this DVD dug up a few "soundies" and a couple of TV performances and combined that with a some movie trailers. There is some narration that provides a little context. The narration is pretty good but the overall quality of all the films is very poor.

Soundies were an early form of music video that were produced in 16mm and played on a type of jukebox found in nightclubs, bars, restaurants and other public places.

It's a real shame that so many of Dorothy's films and musical performances have disappeared or are gathering dust somewhere because of licensing issues. She deserves a lot better, but this is just another tragedy from a life that was full tragedy and ended all too soon.
