Mahogany is a 1975 feature film, produced by Motown Productions and released to theaters by Paramount Pictures on October 8, 1975. Directed by Motown founder Berry Gordy (taking over after British director Tony Richardson was dismissed from the film), Mahogany stars Diana Ross as Tracy Chambers, a poor African-American woman who rises to become a popular fashion designer in Rome. Fresh from the success of Lady Sings the Blues, this film served as Ross’ follow-up feature film.
Ross plays Tracy Chambers, a sassy industrious young woman living in the projects of Chicago who dreams of becoming a fashion designer. She has worked her way up from salesgirl to secretary and assistant to the head buyer at a luxury department store (modeled after, and filmed at, Marshall Field’s on State Street, Chicago). Her boyfriend Brian Walker, played by Billy Dee Williams, is running unsuccessfully for office in the district. When Brian insists Tracy give up her dreams for his, Tracy flees in the middle of the night for Rome, where she becomes a muse to a former client.
The film performed well at the box office upon its release. The film includes a Ross-sung theme song, “Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You’re Going To)“, which became a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1976. It held the number-one spot for one week (January 18–January 24, 1976), replacing “I Write the Songs” by Barry Manilow and replaced by “Love Rollercoaster” by the Ohio Players. “Theme from Mahogany“, written by Michael Masser and Gerald Goffin and produced by Masser, was the best-reviewed element of Mahogany and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Mahogany was released on VHS home video in the 1990s, and was issued on DVD on May 1, 2007

Diana is so beautiful here . . . I know this is a different era, but in my little ole opinion, I can’t think of one female entertainer today that embodies talent, beauty, charm, sophistication and CLASS as Diana.
@sylvissime Yes I have the concert from Paris but only in Black and White
really ? I know she did a concert in Cannes after her “lady sings the blues ” premiere and she came the year after that to receive a prize in France . She also performed in Paris at “the palais des congrès” with “an evening with diana ross”.
She was , and still is , an exceptional lady
@sylvissime the ceremony was held in Cannes that year…
this is not in Cannes but in Paris for the César awards (french academy award) .
Diana is GREAT and BEAUTIFUL, but this is not live – phonogram (live-sync)
