Year Of Release: 1972
Review Date: October 31, 2019
Rating: PG
Running time: 144 minutes
Box Office Gross: $20,000,000
Site Rating: 7 out of 10 stars

Singer turned actress Diana Ross turned in an impressive performance as the late jazz singer Billie Holiday in the biopic "Lady Sings The Blues."

The film's title is taken from Holiday's hit song of the same name. The movie covers the highs and lows of Holiday's life, which includes massive drug addiction that damaged then shortened her life.

"Lady Sings The Blues" has violent themes and inappropriate language that limits its audience.

The film was well put together and has strong production quality. Ross lost herself in the role. She truly established herself as a singer who can actually act well.
