Power of Love

by JOHANS on Jul 1, 2011

This is one movie I enjoy seeing once a year to remind me of the way it was back in those 60s where conventions and appearances mattered most, but the movie is inspiring for those who want to break out of their mold. John Gavin is superbly typecast and Lana & Juanita are awesome. It should have been nominated for one award.

The Pageturner

Typical "Tragic Mulatto" Tale

by The Pageturner on Nov 2, 2008

As a viewer, I enjoyed the movie, and nearly cried. But as one who researches on Blackness in general, I didn't like it at. This movie was basically another "tragic mulatto" sterotype. I would only use the film as a comparison to literature written about Blacks that passed for white. I will give this film one point for showing that trying to be something that you are not can have dire consequences. Other than that, I am neutral.
