In the class ‘Create the Future’ we brainstorm and make up anything and everything that could be our future. There are no boundaries or limits. You just need your imagination! Here are some ‘what if’s’ that we came up with today #hbo#businessinnovation#inholland#imagine#whatif
Born in 1922 in #Cleveland, Ohio, Dorothy Dandridge found early success in show business by performing with her sister, leading to her first appearances in film. Following her star turn in the 1954 #musical#CarmenJones, she became the first #AfricanAmerican to be nominated for a Best Actress #AcademyAward. In 1955, she was featured on the cover of Life magazine, and was treated like visiting royalty at that year’s #Cannes Film Festival. According to The New York Times, Dandridge once said, "If I were Betty Grable, I could capture the world." Belafonte also addressed this issue, noting that his former co-star "was the right person in the right place at the wrong time." Dandridge found it difficult to replicate that success, and her final years were marred by personal and professional problems, until her death at age 42 in 1965. Initially reported to be the result of an embolism, additional findings pointed to an overdose of an antidepressant. Dandridge had little more than $2 in her bank account at the time of her death.
Dandridge's unique and tragic story became the subject of renewed interest in the late 1990s, beginning in 1997 with the release of a biography, Dorothy Dandridge, by Donald Bogle, and a two-week retrospective at New York City's Film Forum. In 2000, film star Halle Berry won Golden Globe and Emmy awards for her portrayal of the groundbreaking actress in an acclaimed #HBO movie, #IntroducingDorothyDandridge .
No Telecine. Breve comentário sem spoiler: No último post, afirmamos que iria ser postado um filme do Ethan Hawke. O ator tem ótimos filmes, sendo que se destaca melhor em suspenses. Nesse faroeste, com elenco estelar, talvez tenha ficado um pouco ofuscado, principalmente, diante do Sr. Denzel Washington, com quem contracenou também em “Dia de Treinamento”. ⠀
