Canvassing six decades of Ella Fitzgerald's astonishing trajectory from a teenager living on the streets of Harlem to her life changing appearance at the Apollo Theatre, JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS illustrates her sublime transformation, reconstructing the stale stock narrative into a well-rounded examination of her mixed fortunes.Written by
Ella's is a fascinating story of strife, success, and its price..
This documentary is not. A weak strand holds it together, with a whole lot of unworthy interviews, and ending with a star struck unknown rendering ella's tisket tasket without any of ella's flavor.. A lost opportunity..
