"The Color Purple" - Miss Celie and Shug Avery
Steven Spielberg (Director of “The Color Purple”)admits that his greatest mistake in directing this film was his lack of courage portraying the lesbian relationship between Celie and Shug. At the time of filming, Spielberg feared that overt sexuality between the two characters would alienate audiences, a decision he now regrets.
“I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.”
- Marissa Mayer
Performed by the unsung entertainer, Betti Mays (accompanied by Sidney Catlett and his band) in the film Boy! What a Girl! (1947)
