Dorothy Dandridge, Marilyn Monroe and Ava Gardner were Friends in their Lifetime and this is mentioned in Earl Mills Biography. I love my Famous Cousin and work hard to keep her Image "Alive" in The World Today! Google: POWERFUL PEPLE and FRIENDS

bonjour j`ai vue le film cette semaine sur M6 tres touchant,et tres intérressant, je ne comprend pas qu`une artiste noir tres connu et respecté de son public, devait passer par les coullisses, uriner dans un goblet, ne pas s`approcher de la piscine, resté dans sa chambre pour ne pas choquer les clients, et pourtant ils allaient l`applaudir après ces spectacles, je ne comprend pas cette réaction heureusement que tous a changer. Mais quelle fin trajique un peu comme marylin elles sont partie trop jeunes elles auraient continuer une belle carrière, en tout cas dorothy c`est battue pour se faire aimer et obtenir ce quelle voulait et je dit bravo. A bientot peut être cecile

Biography

Dorothy Jean Dandridge (November 9, 1922 – September 8, 1965) was an African-American film and theatre actress, singer and dancer. She is perhaps best known for being the first black actress to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the 1954 film Carmen Jones. Dandridge performed as a vocalist in venues such as the Cotton Club and the Apollo Theater. During her early career, she performed as a part of The Wonder Children, later The Dandridge Sisters and appeared in a succession of films, usually in uncredited roles. In 1959, she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Porgy and Bess. She is the subject of the 1999 HBO biographical film, Introducing Dorothy Dandridge. She has been recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Dandridge was married and divorced twice, first to dancer Harold Nicholas (the father of her daughter, Harolyn Suzanne) and then to hotel owner Jack Denison. Dandridge died under mysterious circumstances at the age of 42.
