When the movie was firt released white people were peeved because judy garland was their Goddess and alot of black people were upset because some thought that stephanie mills who starred in the play should do the roll-but then who would have bank rolled it???? most reports stated that the movie probably would never make the money spent on it back-I'm not sure-but- I think it has-I loved the movie then as I do now and It is a black movie classic among the kid's-who it was made for anyway
