belafonte may have far less credits as an actor in films than as 'himself' but with 120 appearances on screen (big but mostly small) harry has a legacy to share. his most recent appearance is in: ”Lead Belly: Life, Legend, Legacy (2009).
actor, singer, composer and civil rights activist, harry belafonte is brutally honest regarding his views of the bush administration. however, running the president down is only part of what he has to say:
“Each and every one of you has the power, the will and the capacity to make a difference in the world in which you live in.'
his films i am familiar with are 1954's 'carmen jones' and 1959's 'odds against tomorrow.' the man is staggering handsome and still fighting the good fight.
