Wild Women don’t Have the Blues 

Shows how the blues were born out of the economic and social transformation of African American life early in the 20th century. It recaptures the lives and times of Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Ida Cox, Alberta Hunter, Ethel Waters and the other legendary women who made the blues a vital part of American culture. The film brings together for the first time dozens of rare, classic renditions of the early blues.
by Christine Dall, USA, 1989, 58 min, documentary in English.
