thanks to Dew.
Brock Peters has such a great role as "a man with a grudge against all white society". He began acting in movies like Porgy and Bess (1959) or To Kill a Mockingbird then we sort of lost him in the world of TV series.
He even played Admiral Cartwright in Star Trek !!
He died in february 2004.
Ruby Dee was "the first black woman to appear in major roles at the American Shakespeare Festival". She was involved a lot in the Civil Rights movement in the sixties. She is a member of National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and she even established the "Ruby Dee Scholarship in Dramatic Art for talented young black women".
She played also in Do the Right Thing (1989).
This scene is the climax of the movie.
How Ruby Dee/Joan Robinson urged her husband Brock Peters/Arnold Robinson not to fight back is a very powerful experience.
Jan Sterling played in Billy Wilder's Ace in the Hole (1951) & was nicknamed the Film noir blonde.
She died in 2004.
Jack Gilford and his wife were blacklisted during the Hollywood Blacklist of the 1950s. He was known in the sixties for his Cracker Jack TV commercials. He worked for TV/Films/Broadway Theaters.
And he also died in 1990. Sorry folks !
Who is she slapping ?
This was the Second Part.
