"The Color Purple": Spielberg
“The Color Purple”, directed by Steven Spielberg (1985) was an unusual film for this director. It told a personal story of a black girl growing up in the South in the early 1900s after abuse by her father (who made her pregnant). It is based on a novel by Alice Walker with a screenplay by Menno Meyjas.
I can recall seeing it at Northpark in Dallas. As I’ve gotten older, I seem to welcome this level of intimacy even more.
It would make actress Whoopi Goldberg a regular, as on the View.
This is a followup to the physics of the color purple.
