Flashback Fridays: 'Claudine'

The year was 1974. The place was Harlem--139th & Edgecombe Ave. to be exact. That's when, and where, the story of 36-year-old Claudine Price unfolds. Yesterday marked the 36th anniversary of the release of "Claudine." Along with Diahann Carroll, who earned both Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for her starring role, the film featured James Earl Jones and a fresh-faced, pre-"Cooley High," pre-'Joe Jackson,' Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs. And lest we forget to make mention of the soulful soundtrack--composed by Curtis Mayfield and performed by Gladys Knight & the Pips--which remains a classic all these many years later.  Join us for a look back at "Claudine."
