Directed by Elia Kazan | 1949

With Jeanne Crain, Ethel Waters, Ethel Barrymore

One of Hollywood’s earliest attempts to grapple with racism in America is a fascinating, controversial melodrama in which a light-skinned black woman (Crain) passing as white faces a crisis when she falls in love with a white doctor. In casting a white actress in the lead, Pinky presents a troubling paradox: how do you make a film purportedly about the evils of racism that nevertheless centers whiteness?
