Good but hardly "Supreme"
Having been an avid fan of Diane's since the release of "Meet The Supremes" in 1962, I think this movie lacked alot of vision and forethought. It was rushed into production by Gordy hoping to cash in on the heighth of Diane's solo career and, wanting to branch out into the movie industry. Other than Diane's supurb singing the film was a total wash. Like the book of the same title, 'Lady' was full of untruths and misconcetions Billie didn't meet McKay for the first time until the early 1950's. Billie's piano man was never murdered while she stood by helplessly. Louis McKay himself was a drug addict,instead of the goodie two shoes we see in the film. If it showed the truth about Holiday, instead of the romantic twiddle we were subjected to, Diane would surly have won the Osacr that year.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
