Danny Glover: The Color Purple

In 1985’s The Color Purple, Danny Glover played Mister Albert Johnson, the abusive man-child husband of Celie. Despite the Black backlash over the film’s controversial depiction of Black men, Glover's multifaceted and layered performance allowed windows into where rage and abuse is born—revealing the pitiful and tortured person beneath the man. An overlooked Oscar-worthy performance for Best Actor, simply because it allowed you to feel empathy for Mister by the film’s last frame. (Photo: DAN CALLISTER Online USA inc)
