Claudine (1974) - (James Earl Jones) US one-sheet

This is a US 27" x 41" poster for the 1974 John Berry film Claudine based on a story by Leter and Tina Pine and starring Diahann Carroll as Claudine. The film is an unusual example from this period of a mainstream film with black actors that is not considered blaxploitation. Plot summary: Claudine is raising six children in Harlem while living on welfare. While working on the side as a maid she meets Rupert [James Earl Jones], a city sanitation worker. At first her children are rude to him because they think he will abandon her as her other men have done. Rupert is paying child support from a previous marriage and the stress from this situation creates problems for him on the job.

Cast and crew: James Earl Jones, Diahann Carroll, Curtis Mayfield, John Berry, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Tamu Blackwell, David Kruger, Yvette Curtis, Eric Jones, Socorro Stephens, Adam Wade, C.
