Ruby Dee John Oliver She and Ossie were my era’s Lunt & Fontaine. murtaza I’ll never forget her scene with Denzel in American Gangster, we all know which one I’m talking about. She was also brilliant in Raisin in the Sun Mike Ruby Dee, Rest in Peace.. so great in Do the Right Thing.. and was perfect in her spotlight scene in American Gangster. David Lindsey Loved her in JUNGLE FEVER. RIP. Joao Mattos I will always be disapointed of how she appears only for a few minutes on “American Gangster”. She was terrific on it, but she deserved more screen time. I remember when I saw the trailer that I thought her role will be much bigger than it actually is. Terrific actress.
