Unmarried, Claudine supports herself and her six children by working as a maid--albeit secretly, so she can still qualify for welfare. Garbageman James Earl Jones falls in love with Claudine, and after strenuous effort manages to win the affections of her suspicious kids. Just when it seems as though there's a marriage in the offing, Jones runs off. Claudine's kids hunt him down and shame him into returning to their

...Claudine is never quite able to become anything more than a highly dated product of its time...

Well-intentioned but not very compelling as drama or romantic comedy, Claudine bears the distinction of being one of few 1970s films to offer a black femme a lead role, a single mom of six on welfare for which Diahann Carroll received an Oscar nomination.

A rather simple love story about two experienced and jaded adults.

Audience Reviews for Claudine

An okay film but often I felt as though I was watching an extra long episode of Good Times. A very mediocre representation of the black experience in New York City.

70's film about romance, relationships and welfare, as Dianne Carroll, single mum, raises her six-strong brood, holds down a job and tries to find time to hang out with James Earl Jones - minus the mask but distinctive gravellly voice intact. A quality romance-drama for people who like a little more reality with their romance.... the dialog rings true, as does the situation and the logistical difficulties of love v's paying the rent, and the kids act like real kids do in a single-mum family. Beautiful soundtrack by Gladys Knights and the Pips as well..
