New documentary to pay tribute to Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee

The relationship between the late Ossie Davis and his widow Ruby Dee is one of the most legendary in Hollywood history. These icons of stage and screen may never have won an Oscar, but they will finally get their due with a new documentary which pays homage to the incredible work together. The Huffington Post reports:

After years of viewing their public talents through their various award-winning projects, the backstage life and times of Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee will finally be recognized in the forthcoming documentary, Life’s Essentials With Ruby Dee.

Directed by Dee’s grandson Muta’Ali Muhammad and his partner Jevon “NJ” Frank, the documentary marks the first official project chronicling the couple’s long careers and 57 years of marriage.

“We have received several proposals over the years [to do a film], but it never seemed to be the right time or circumstance,” Dee explained to The Huffington Post.
