I didn't guess correctly, so I looked it up. I remember seeing the movie "Sounder" when it first came out and she was electric. I can't believe how good she still looks, given that she was born in 1933!

Yes, that’s her.

For anyone who still wants to guess, notice that the actress’s name is not there. You’re still welcome to guess.

Cicely Tyson? (Not certain how to spell her first name.)

Michael Leddy said...

Yes, it’s Cicely Tyson, years before Jane Pittman.

Without cheating, I'm guessing that it's Mrs. Miles Davis. Her signature overbite is a dead giveaway.

Michael Leddy said...

Yep, that’s her.
