  1. Shirley Knight was a terrific actress. I first saw in in Dutchman, a little known film from 1966 based on a play by Leroi Jones, aka Amiri Baraka. A powerful film about race. Sadly, still relevant today.

  2. I think she is such an underrated actress. Even her small dramatic television roles are memorable. I can imagine her contribution to a film that deals with race. (unfortunately it is still relevant today especially now.

    I’ll have to track down Dutchman. I need to see it. I love to offer as many clips as I can when I do a feature, and I’m a completist when I love someones work! Cheers, Joey
