Happy Birthday Tamara Dobson! Today Ms. Dobson would’ve turned 66. She was born this day, May 14.
We’d like to thank all of you for visiting this site and being fans of Ms. Dobson!
We spotted this rare and extraordinary painting from this blogspot blog.
The painting was requested the artist’s friend from college. His client apparently developed an interest in soul singers and other prominent entertainers whose careers blossomed around the 1960s and 70s.
The painting looks to from Ms. Dobson’s work on the 1976 Redd Foxx film Norman… Is That You?
Great artistic work.

Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold is the 1975 Warner Bros. action-adventure Blaxploitation film that starred Tamara Dobson as Cleopatra Jones. It’s the sequel to the 1973 film Cleopatra Jones.
In Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold, the plot begins with two government agents — Matthew Johnson and Melvin Johnson — being captured by the Dragon Lady, played Stella Stevens.
Cleopatra Jones (Dobson) then travels to Hong Kong to rescue the agents. Jones pairs up with Tanny (Ni Tien) and ends up in the Dragon Lady’s casino, which in actuality, is the headquarters for her underground drug empire. Jones and Tanny use their combat skills to battle the Dragon Lady’s henchmen and rescues the agents.
The film was not as well received as its predecessor, Cleopatra Jones, due mainly to the decline in the popularity of the blaxplotation genre.
