Directed by Berry Gordy, Jr. as a vehicle for his star Diana Ross, Mahogany traces the life of a poor girl who makes it in the fashion world (first as a model, then designer) and deserts her boyfriend (Billy Dee Williams) in the meantime, hooking up instead with a photographer (Anthony Perkins). The song "Do You Know When You're Going To" (Gerry Goffin/Michael Masser) was Oscar-nominated. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An outrageously bad '70s soaper with Anthony Perkins providing some big unintentional laughs as a psycho fashion photographer."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"Wow! How far did Diana fall? Great song, though."
‑ Michael A. Smith, Nolan's Pop Culture Review
"So overwrought it has a certain camp value."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Even a charming last-minute happy ending can't quite redeem all the mess and unidentified dread."
‑ Dan Callahan, Slant Magazine
"Feminists must have hurled their Earth Shoes at the screen when they saw this dreck."
‑ Don Willmott, Filmcritic.com
"a perfect companion piece to 'Dreamgirls'... Sitting through it is like flipping through your high school yearbook and laughing out loud at what was once considered stylish or sophisticated."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"supremely corny but rather enjoyable too"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
