If you were seeing a movie in the ’70’s, chances are you were going to be watching a blaxploitation film. That was until Claudine came along in 1974. The movie used unique vehicles to tell a story that had largely been ignored in cinema. Hopefully, you’ve seen this classic. If so, it’s certainly a story you won’t forget. And though you know the story and remembered all the outrageous moments from the movie, we bet you don’t know the behind these scenes secrets.

    Great movie! A true classic that really doesn’t get the love that it should. The themes in the movies are still so relevant today.

    Diana Sands was a brilliant actress, and I loved her silky voice. I think she would have been better than Carroll in the role.

    I am getting married to Make yours a happy home. The scene with the family in Roop’s car and the end scene with the wedding and all them getting arrested are the best scenes.
