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

An outrageously bad '70s soaper with Anthony Perkins providing some big unintentional laughs as a psycho fashion photographer.
Kicky but muddled, it's still a valuable reminder of Ross and Williams in their too-brief moment in the sun. Why doesn't someone re-team them now?
Even a charming last-minute happy ending can't quite redeem all the mess and unidentified dread.
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.
Wow! How far did Diana fall? Great song, though.
Feminists must have hurled their Earth Shoes at the screen when they saw this dreck.
supremely corny but rather enjoyable too
So overwrought it has a certain camp value.
