A multi-Emmy award winning HBO Original Movie based on an autobiography of Dorothy Dandridge -- the first African-American woman to win a Best Actress nomination in 1954 for her role in Carmen Jones. Her rise to stardom is cursed by a beauty that opens doors and a skin color that closes them. Caught between a talent that catapults her to national acclaim and a society influenced by prejudice, Dorothy seeks to overcome color barriers in both the entertainment industry and society itself. Through it all, her faithful manager, Earl Mills, stands by her throughout her rollercoaster career and marriages.
