Here’s a throw-‘waaaay’-back to the TV Movie “The Sophisticated Gents” (circa 1981). (How many do you recognize?) This is a photo assemblage of the “Gents” and their Wives at the ‘reunion’s formal black-tie evening! “Gents” was one of the most memorable films I ever worked on, with so many of my personal and brilliantly talented friends, several of whom have passed on to that other plain. What an ensemble of great actors, and what fun we all had together. — with Thalmus Rasualla, Dick Anthony Williams, Rosey Grier, Alfre Woodard, Bernie Casey., Raymond St. Jacques, Paul Winfield…, Bibi Besch, Ja’net Dubois, Sonny Jim Gaines, Rosalind Cash, Denise Nicholas, Beah Richards, and Melvin Van Peebles.
