    Regarding "Jungle Fever," Phyllis Yvonne Stickney, who appeared in this film, as well as Malcolm X, How Stella Got Her Groove Back, The Women of Brewster Place, etc., spends time in NYC and Brooklyn. She's a terrific stand-up comic, personable and intelligent. Please invite her to the showing. You can find her in Facebook. She does respond.
