Been Rich All My Life

(first run features) Release Date: July 21, 2006 Director: Heather Lyn MacDonald Cast: Geri Kennedy, Bertye Lou Wood, Cleo Hayes, Elaine Ellis, Fay Ray, Marion Coles Plot: "Been Rich All My Life" follows the unlikliest troupe of tap dancing divas. They are the "Silver Belles," five former showgirls now aged 84-96, performing to standing ovations, as sassy as they ever were. They met during Harlem's 1930's heyday, dancing in the chorus lines at the Apollo Theater, the Cotton Club, Small's Paradise and Connie's Inn, performing with legendary band leaders like Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington. When the big band era ended, they all went into other work -- but in 1985 they put their shoes back on, and have been dancing together again ever since. They may not kick as high, but they are hip-swaying and show-biz savvy. Genre: Documentary Website: link
