Dorothy Dandridge, a talented and beautiful performer, was the first colored person to achieve an Academy Award nomination for a leading role for her work in Carmen Jones (1954). Her career entered a gradual, but continuous decline thereafter. She only made a handful of films, few noteworthy, but none to the bar that had made her an overnight star in 1954. Any fans of Miss Dandridge, or any other colored beauties? Lena Horne, Eartha Kitt, Josephine Baker, Nina Mae McKinney?
