Harry Belafonte Remembers Dorothy Dandridge

Dorothy Dandridge and Harry Belafonte appeared in three feature films together – Bright Road, Carmen Jones, and Island in the Sun. “For me, at age twenty-five, Bright Road was just a fun first stab at acting in films. For Dorothy Dandridge, who was then twenty-nine, it meant much more,” Belafonte wrote in his autobiography. “I had the chance to observe, at close range, the actress Dorothy Dandridge, a future legend, in her first starring role.”
