 Dorothy D & Harry B

Harry Belafonte, Dandridge's frequent co-star who played opposite her in "Carmen Jones," summed up Dandridge's problem as: "Right person, right place, wrong time." HBO tweaked his judgment and used the line in its promotion for the film as

"Right woman, right place, wrong time."

That one-word change reflected director Coolidge's view of Dandridge's life. "To me, this was the classic beautiful woman in Hollywood story," she says. "Dorothy's problem was worse, because she was black, but she was a woman who was used up by the system and then thrown away. You couldn't even put in a movie all the pressures those women were up against."

Perhaps it was the wrong time for a lot of women (and of course it's the tragic heroines whose myths endure). Marilyn Monroe and Judy Garland succumbed to drugs and alcohol. Veronica Lake died alone and penniless.

"In Hollywood then, men ran the studios. Men ran everything. Women had no power. Dorothy could never have produced her own movie, the way I've been able to," Berry says. "Living Dorothy's life and making that movie has made me realize that I can't complain, because people who came before me had to overcome a lot more than I've had to face. The problem with Dorothy was even when she triumphed, it wasn't enough. When she got to the top, the view wasn't what she thought it would be."

  • Birth Name: Dorothy Jean Dandridge
  • Birth Place: Cleveland, OH
  • Date of Birth / Zodiac Sign: 11/09/1922, Scorpio
  • Date of Death: 09/08/1965
  • Profession: Actor; singer


1) Carmen Jones (1954) was the best break I`ve ever had. But no producer ever knocked on my door. There just aren`t that many parts for a black actress.


2) If I were white, I could capture the world.


3) It (prejudice) is such a waste. It makes you logy and half-alive. It gives you nothing. It takes away.

Zelda Wynn Valdes Fabulous Legendary Designer Wowww!


Zelda Wynn Valdes

Zelda Wynn Valdes

Zelda Wynn Valdes (June 28, 1905 – September 26, 2001) is best known for designing the original iconic Playboy Bunny costume, as well as her work with the Dance Theater of Harlem. Throughout her storied career, Valdes became one of the first black women to own a shop on Broadway. Her beautiful, fashion-forward gowns, which emphasized a shapely silhouette, were worn by Dorothy Dandridge, Ella Fitzgerald, Joyce Bryant, and Mae West, among others.

In a 1994 interview with The New York Times, when speaking of her notable celebrity clientele,

“I only fit her once in 12 years,” she said of Miss Fitzgerald. “I had to do everything by imagination for her. She liked fancy clothes with beads and appliques. I’d just look at the papers and say, ‘Gee, she’s gotten larger.’ “

Though she closed her business at the age of 83, Valdes continued to work with the Dance Theater of Harlem through her 90’s.
