Was the first Black woman to direct a Hollywood movie.
"Euzhan Palcy strikes me as proof that great directors can come from anywhere - but they must know they are great directors and trust they are great" - Roger Ebert
"Euzhan Palcy has an unusual combination of abilities. She can give you an extraordinary action sequence that gets your adrenaline pumping and then she can move right into an intimate scene between two people that comes straight from the soul. Women are often not considered when it comes to directing action movies, but Euzhan has a range that would be hard to find in most directors, males or female." - Alan Alda
