Fans of MAHOGANY (1975) and LADY SINGS THE BLUES (1972) are in luck. The two Diana Ross vehicles are playing in all their big-screen glory this week on the Westside.

Motown founder Berry Gordy directed the former, the saga of a Chicago shopgirl and struggling fashion designer turned top international model. It’s a classic Joan Crawford scenario transferred to the 1970s, and co-stars Anthony Perkins, Billy Dee Williams, and Jean-Pierre Aumont as Count Rosetti.

MAHOGANY will be followed by a Q & A with Tisa Bryant and Ernest Hardy.

LADY SINGS THE BLUES is, of course, the Billie Holiday story, directed by Sidney J. Furie. It will screen following Waiting to Exhale and an introductory conversation with Suzanne de Passe.
