I caught this last year on TCM and really enjoyed it.

A few weeks later I was on a Jet Blue flight to NYC and saw Diahann Carroll (looking every inch the glam diva ofcourse).

I tapped her gently on shoulder while she was stretching her legs and walking up the aisle and told her that I was a big fan recently enjoyed watching 'Claudine'. 'It was great', I told her.

She said "thank you" and very gracious.

I have read that this film is not considered a Blaxploitation film?

Do you have a resource to the literature that you read? If so I would like to read what the author wrote. This film is definitely blaxploitation.
