Aro Recommended Lady Sings the Blues


USA 1972, 143 minutes
Dir. Sidney J. Furie
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama, Music / Jazz & Blues

Topics: Period 1940s, Drugs & Alcohol, Biopic, Showbiz.


“This show-biz bio hits all of the high points of the formula with some measure of precision.”~Chicago Reader

Aroview: Diana Ross is terrific in her acting debut as famously-troubled jazz legend Billie Holiday in this flawed but fascinating biographical drama loosely based on her 1956 autobiography. Produced by Motown Productions, this also features an unusual straight Richard Pryor performance and a lush score by Michel Legrand.
