For her third and final theatrical feature film, Diana Ross starred as Dorothy in this Black cast musical adapted from The Wizard of Oz.
“Diana Ross was a more talented actress than she was sometimes given credit for, and was especially success- ful with a classic kind of movie star performance: larger-than-life and centered on her own distinct star persona.” (Bogle, Hollywood Black, p. 148)
