The Preacher’s Wife is a delightful, romantic and fun film on family and faith. The story takes place in a New York City church that is declining. The pastor Rev. Henry Biggs (Courtney B. Vance) is plagued by all the work needed in the church, membership, and to top it all a developer Joe Hamilton (Gregory Hines) is trying to get him to sell the church to build a condominium. As usual Rev. Biggs prays for God to send him some help to fix the problems. The answer comes in the form of the debonair angel Dudley (Denzel Washington) who looks just like regular folk. Rev. Biggs dispels the idea when Dudley tells him he is an angel. His secretary Beverly (Loretta Devine) thinks he is there to replace her and becomes suspicious of everything he does. Julia (Whitney Houston) Rev. Biggs’ wife and son Jeremiah are delighted with the attention given to them by Dudley. Rev. Biggs has been so overcome by all his worries that he has begun to unconsciously neglect his family. Not only if the secretary suspicious, but Julia’s mother (Jennifer Lewis) begins to watch the comings and goings of Dudley, and all the attention he is giving to her daughter. After ice-skating one evening they attend a nightclub where Julia used to sing. All throughout the movie you will hear the melodic Gospel sounds from Ms. Houston. At this point Dudley realizes he is falling in love with Julia, so he retreats and gets back to the job he was sent to do. He foils the plans of Joe Hamilton to get Rev. Biggs to sell the church property. Rev. Biggs reconnects with his family during the church Christmas pageant. Dudley erases his memory from everyone’s mind except for Jeremiah who with a child-like simplicity still sees him at the pageant. Dudley leaves them a Christmas tree with an angel at the top. Jeremiah wishes Dudley a Merry Christmas as he leaves, and life is back to normal.

Scott Joplin is a film biography starring Billy Dee Williams as the legendary ragtime pianist and composer. Scott Joplin is the son of former slaves, whose father leaves the family early on and he is raised by his mother. Scott is interested in music, particularly the piano and with the help of music teacher Julius Weiss, he becomes proficient on the piano. In the late 19th century, Joplin is playing piano in dives and bars. The color of his skin holds him back. Joplin enters a music contest and introduces his most famous song, The Maple Leaf Rag. It becomes an instant hit around town. A white publisher offers to buy the composition offering him one per cent of the earnings. While it sounds like a very low offering, Joplin jumps at the chance to get his music out to the public. Ragtime music takes off and Joplin becomes wealthier than he has ever realized. Joplin is never satisfied with just ragtime music. He longs to write a concerto or an opera. For the time being he continues to write music and perform in bars and brothels. While he is touring and teaching music he is also wrting an opera but it is confiscated along with some of his belongings for non payment of debts that he owes. He moves to New York city to seek his fortune and to find a producer for an opera he wants to bring to the stage. Unfortunately the show closes due to lack of interest. By this time Joplin is beginning to take ill. He has contracted syphilis. He slowly deteriorates and dies at the age of fourty nine. This film follows Joplin through his triumphs and downfalls. It celebrates the life of one of the world's most prolific American composers.
