Carroll Wants To Take No Strings To Hollywood
Singer Diahann Carroll wants to make a movie version of her hit Broadway musical NO STRINGS.
The play, about a black model who falls for a white writer, was written for Carroll by lyricist Richard Rodgers in 1962.
It thrilled audiences and critics and won the star a Tony Award. More than 40 years on, Carroll is fed up waiting for someone else to take it to the big screen - so she's planning to do it herself.
Carroll, 72, says, "I was so proud of that show. We had a glorious time on Broadway, and I don't know why they never make it into a movie.
"Maybe I should try to produce that movie myself. I might just do that."
