Like so many divas before her and after her, "La Ross" shines in this 1975 camp classic which exemplifies the cliche saying "it's lonely at the top."
The gowns, the glamour, the nails and the youth of Miss Ross are unparalleled. She was beyond fabulous and at the height of her artistic zenith. The montage is especially pleasing and one can only fantasize about being in Rome in the mid 70's while swathed in those fantastic creations and Fendi and Maximillian furs (read the credits).
Substantively, the film is not to be taken seriously....but I agree with one reviewer's assessment back then who said that it is "testament to how glorious it is to be Diana Ross." I wholeheartedly agree.

"Mahogany", a bittersweet story that rejoices and basks in the excesses of fame and fashion that at the same time points to its tragic aspects in its lead character's isolation, is told elegantly through the device of projection in "Do You Know Where You're Going To?". It is as though Diana is asking Billie Dee the same question that Whitney-through another Michael Masser vehicle-would ask some 12 years later:" Didn't We Almost Have it All?". The trade-offs are bittersweet if one's success is in vain-as all success ultimately is; the struggles are ultimately self-serving and alienate those around Diana who watch Diana-both on screen and off-slog her way to the top.
Autobiographically poignant, Diana transfers that sense of isolation that she feels onto Billie Dee, who feels the same way: "Do you know where you're going to/Do you like the things that life is showing you?/Where are you going to?" . Berry Gordy, the movie's director,upon the theatrical release was indicted by Time Magazine for wasting one of America's national treasures. However Clive Davis, formerly president of Arista, indicted the Academy Awards for not nominating "Do You Know where You're Going to?", calling into question the integrity of the Oscar committee and its racial biases and hailing Diana and her delivery as triumphant. After all, it was all about the drama, baby.

It has been many years since I first saw Mahogany at its initial movie release in 1975. I must admit I enjoyed it this original story of a young ghetto lass with aspirations of designing haute couture for the rich & famous. Diana Ross was then at the zenith of her career no doubt wanting to extend her craft and try out new avenues in her profession. To some extent she succeeded especially with Lady sings the blues. No doubt Halle Berry will come out with her version in the future. Mahogany I am glad to say has dated well. Produced at a time when black american awareness was only just starting it offers us an unstereotypical view of life then. Diana Ross does a good portrayal as Tracey, the aspiring talented designer looking for an opportunity to break out of the class prejudice life had thrust upon her. In a way black women had it even harder back then, wanting equality not only for their race but for their gender as well. Black men are notoriously sexist in that respect. But I digress. Ross does her best work during scenes with Billy Dee Williams character Brian. The idealistic young politician who wants her to give everything up for him. Sound familiar. The chemistry on screen was quite believable that one would wonder what was really going on behind the scenes. Oh well. The costumes and dresses were stunningly gorgeous and designed by miss Ross herself. Hows that for multi talented. The romantic ending following the rally at the end was predictable but touching all the same. Shame the Lady hasnt made any films for a while. Guess its hard top this one.

I have always found the film, "Mahogany" very intriguing and interesting. Whenever it's on television, I can't help but sit down and watch it, even if I initially don't want to. For some reason this movie draws you into the life of Diana Ross' character as she moves from struggle to success in the fashion industy starting as a model and then a designer.
The love story between Ross and Billy Dee Williams did not seem very warm, but maybe that's how the characters were. I didn't really believe that the two of them were really in love. It just seemed like Williams yelled at Ross for her beliefs (mainly because he was a political figure in the film) and told her what to do all the time. Other than that aspect, I thought the movie was really good.
Anthony Perkins played the role of the famous photographer who turns Ross' character from a regular struggling young woman into "Mahogany" the fashion icon. His mental breakdown towards the end of the film, and his ultimate demise, is disturbing.
Overall, I would highly recommend this film!

You know this story had to be a fantasy! Because no one in their right mind is going to turn their back on a career that is earning them millions of dollars just because they think they can't live without the person they love. For all that money, you could find PLENTY of people to love you...LOL. But I liked this film, especially Anthony Perkins' role as the deranged Sean (aka Norman Bates turned photographer). He was funny. Billy Dee seems a liitle stiff as Brian the politician, but he manages to get through the movie. Diana as Tracy, the aspiring fashion designer, is very convincing as well, especially the scene where she is yelling at a customer on the telephone...and screaming at Brian as he's leaving a wild party in her honor ("Brian, don't you know who I am?")...do you think she was really acting? Or was that the REAL Ross? I don't doubt it! But this movie is great to watch. Get it and grab the popcorn. You'll like it.
