In an attempt to improvise the "walk" of a homeless indigent, Diana Ross discreetly placed an orange between her skirted thighs and proceeded to hobble along on cue. The effort required to keep the concealed orange in place without using her hands, effected a gait so uncanny that Ross's director, Larry Elikann, later quizzed her about how she walked the "walk." According to Ross, herself, as related to the audience on Inside the Actors Studio (1994) (19 February 2006), she never did disclose the simplicity of her little ruse. See more »
A realistic look into the heartbreaking subject of mental illness
I have been living with a paranoid schizophrenic son for most of almost thirty years. This diagnosis is considered the most serious of all mental illnesses and is devastating to the entire family. Why is it the most tragic of all illnesses? Because you don't die from it. Instead most of those suffering with it live in utter torment their entire lives. Most never leave the self-imposed confines of their darkened rooms.
Diana Ross's portrayal of one suffering with this disease was brilliant. She should have won some kind of award -- at least some kind of recognition for her role. She was brilliant and, if anything, understated in her performance. She only touched the surface of the tragic sufferings of this horrendous brain disease.
Kudos for Diana!
