Actress, dancer, singer. Here was a woman with talent, beauty and ambition. Dorothy Dandrdge owed it to herself to make it to the eop. And make it, she would. An acclaimed stage performer, Dorothy still struggled with the challenge of her color, in a time that wouldn't let some stars in by the front door. Yet against the odds she beat out many more famous rivals for the role of "Carmen Jones", becoming the first black woman ever nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award. Marriages and affairs would break her heart, but her heart was strong. Seductive and easily seduced, she was born a star - with all the glory and all the pain of being loved, abused, cheated, glorified, undermined and underfeated. Here was a woman who wouldn't wait in the wings.

Rated R for language and sexual content.
