I guess everyone's busy, but I'm throwing a few things out, just in case someone pops back in.
I won't write much now, been a busy day, but HAD to mention that I saw A Raisin in the Sun again, after many years. Wow, there was so much I'd forgotten, and I sat in AWE of the acting ability of ALL the cast, but most especially of Sidney Poitier and Claudia McNeil!!! Wow....they did not allow you that detatched comfort space, that one can usually get when the tension climbs too high...nope, you were THERE; I was there, in the midst of their intense struggle.
Sidney was an emasculated man, who was desperately seeking his place of respect in the family....there were times that you felt uneasy, that he was about to explode! And his mom was a proud, wise woman who'd worked in kitchens all her life, and normally had calm guidence to give...except for a scene where she had taken more than she could stand, and appeared as a mountain (volcano) beginning to quake from her feet, up and up, till you thought she'd self-destruct. GREAT actor, and we never hear of her.
Take another look, if you haven't seen it in a while!
