Mahogany – an over-the-top Diana Ross vehicle from 1975 and one of my all-time favorite movies – is airing tonight at 8 PM Central on Bounce TV! The wigs, the glamour, the drama! The Billy Dee Williams of it all! YES, darlings! *snaps fingers*
Seriously, there is some disco-fantastic fashion and a great storyline in this film. “The Boss” plays Tracy Chambers, a go-getter who works her way up from salesgirl to secretary to fashion muse and designer in Rome and finds out whether success without true love is worth it in the end. I’m going to watch in a chiffon caftan and bouffant hair. That seems only appropriate.
Fun fact: Mahogany was shot partially in Chicago’s State Street Marshall Fields, which is now a Macy’s flagship store.
