Billy Dee Williams: Lady Sings the Blues

Lady Sings the Blues was the first Billy Dee Williams film that officially christened him a matinee heartthrob for the masses. Biographers debate the nobility of Billie Holiday’s husband Louis McKay, but Williams took the high road in his performance. Portraying him as a sensitive, loving, patient yet tortured spouse of an addict, Williams added layers of richness to the depiction of Black men in film. And he looked breathtakingly handsome doing it. (Photo: CBS /Landov)
