Mr.I, Tommy Hicks(The cat in the picture with Tracy Camilla Johns), Was in the movie, 'The Five Heartbeats',(Tommy Hicks played the role of The Preacher, In the church scene near the end of the movie), Tracy Camilla Johns used to get loose at The Paradise Garage, On a regular basis back in
The early to mid 80's(My man from around the way in Queens, Went to highschool with Tracy Camillia Johns at Jamaica Highschool in Jamaica,Queens, Tracy Camilla Johns, Originally from Hollis,Queens/LOL).
One of my favorite films ever. I will definitely be picking this up.
The hours I have pondered and argued over what the point of it all is are many. As a sexually liberated, artist, woman who lives in Brooklyn, I will simply say Spike got my slice of life more right than anyone else I can think of. I am a witness that Nola's incredible life is some folks' all day, every day existence...
Yeah shalewa im gonna pick up a copy to.Seeing it as an adult will probably be a different experience than seeing it as a child.Nola seemed to be a woman who refused to be what society said she should be.I find that kinda cool,she lived her life the way she wanted to live it.I remember one scene that disturbed me and that was the rape scene.
As I proceed to civilize the uncivilized
Word to wisdom from the groove to the wise
I guess im the verbalizer for the fact im moving blackwards
This asiatic blackman is a dog spelled backwards
Brand Nubian dropping science.
Tracy Johns was so darn fine.
Loved the movie, definate classic.
Old men start wars that young men fight.
One of my favorites! Glad to hear it's out on DVD.

Thanks. I saw it at the Hyde Park theater in the winter of '87.
On the low, The original cats who were cast to be in, 'She's Gotta have it', Were, Larry Fishburne(Who was cast to play the role that Tommy Hicks played), Giancarlo Esposito(Who was cast to play the role of Greer, The playboy/LOL), And, Kadeem Hardison(Who was cast to play the role of Mars Blackman/LOL), For whatever reason, Larry Fishburne,Giancarlo Esposito and
Kadeem Hardison, Were not down with the movie(Spike Lee never mentioned why those cats were not down with the movie, In an interview Spike Lee gave in the early 90's with Fab Five Freddy from MTV raps in the 90's), Spike Lee also mentioned in the interview with Freddy, That, She's Gotta have it',
Was the worst movie that he ever directed(Along with the actors and Actresses in, 'She's Gotta have it', Spike Lee also mentioned during the interview with Fab Five Freddy, That he learned alot while directing,'She's Gotta have it', In 1986(Along with Ernest Dickerson, Spike Lee's Former Longtime Cinematographer from There NYU Film School Days in the early 80's
In New York), Also, Spike Lee has a history of putting more than a few cats down with his movies through the years(Denzel Washington,Wesley Snipes,Bill Nunn,Giancarlo Esposito,Roger Smith,Etc), But, Spike Lee does not have a history of putting down alot of of the same young ladies, That have appeared in his movies through the years(I can't think of one actress, Who has appeared in more than one Spike Lee movie, Except Spike Lee's sister/LOL),
Hopefully, Spike Lee will work again with Larry Fishburne, On the low, Larry Fishburne, Mentioned in the late 80's(After School days in 1988/LOL), That he(Larry Fishburne), Would not work with Spike Lee again, Because, Of Spike Lee's approach to discipline on the set and Spike Lee not allowing actors and actresses, To do scenes over(That the Actors and Actresses, Felt that they could have done alot better with a second or third take).
