Movie Diary 3/8/2017

A Raisin in the Sun (Daniel Petrie, 1961). The original cast of Lorraine Hansberry’s stage play is intact in this strong (if still stagey) translation – and a strong cast it is, with Sidney Poitier, Claudia McNeil, Diana Sands, and Ruby Dee. The writing is so exceptional it makes you wonder what Hansberry would have accomplished if she hadn’t died at 34.
