Freak Show Friday

We are less than one month away from the new season of “American Horror Story”. Staying true to the anthology’s reputation, this season is sure to be great. Based in early 1950’s Jupiter, Florida the fourth season is subtitlted “Freak Show”. From what has been revealed so far about the show which is set to premiere October 8th on FX is that it is darken than last season’s “Coven” and centers around America’s last standing freak show.  Emmy award winner, Jessica Lange will once again [and quite possibly for the last time] lead the returning cast as Elsa Mars, a former German cabaret star who runs the show. Lange has been very open about this season being her last season as she has said the show is very time consuming during the year. lange[As with previous seasons Lange looks fabulous and I’m sure will give us a stellar performance] Returning for a second season is Kathy Bates as Ethel, the bearded lady and Angela Bassett as Desiree Dupree, the lady with three breasts. Also returning of course is Sarah Paulson as Bette AND Dot. [twins or conjoined twins?] Making an appearance in four episodes this season is legend Pattie Labelle, as mother to actress Gabourey Sidibe’s character. While I am extremely excited about what this season will bring I think I am more excited about the opening sequence and the theme song. Melanie Martinez’s [The Voice] “Carousel” from her LP opens up this seasons show and I must say it is an addictive little diddy. Have a listen!

A Hollywood Legend

“The kind of beauty I want most is the hard-to-get kind that comes from within — strength, courage, dignity.” ~Ruby Dee

Born October 27, 1922, she was a legendary actress, civil rights activist, playwright, journalist and beloved wife/window of famed actor Ossie Davis. Starring in films such as “A Raisin in the Sun”, “Do the Right Thing” and “American Gangster” she was a true legend. Her unconventional theories on how to make a marriage work [Including opening up about her open marriage] are what made Dee legendary. A true beauty. We may have lost a legend but Ossie has gained his love back.

Rest in Peace Lady Ruby

A Mystery in Cabrini Green

If I can remember correctly I was about 11 years old the first time I watched the 1975 classic “Cooley High”. I remember it being an instant favorite and I watched it over and over for a month. [I couldn’t get enough of Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs]. Last night TVOne had a showing of the film just before the debut of Unsung Hollywood’s expose’ on the film. The entire documentary was full of little known facts people may or may not have known, but one thing that especially stood out was the fact that one of the stars of the film disappeared so to speak. [Hypothetically but literally disappeared] Cynthia Davis, the beautiful fair skinned actress [ who almost wasn’t cast because of her complexion] was never heard from again after the movie wrapped.Cynthia Davis Cooley High
