Miss Melody Jones (1972)


The glitter of tinseltown fades quickly for a young Black woman (Philomena Nowlin) when she finds her path to film stardom littered with sleazy dealmakers, broken promises and seedy strip joints. By day, she's an actress hungry for exposure and blind to the advances of those who seek to exploit her. By night, she's Miss Melody Jones, shedding her clothes in the stark, murky cool of a Hollywood strip joint. When she meets Tim (Ronald Warden), a young Black filmmaker from UCLA, she begins to question her sense of purpose. But only until her next audition. A shattering portrait of a Black woman sucked into the cruel vortex of a town that loves you only when it needs you.
