PINKY (1949) (DVD)
Starring:  Ethel Barrymore, Ethel Waters, Jeanne Crain
Directed By:  John Ford, Elia Kazan

THIS PRODUCT IS MANUFACTURED ON DEMAND USING REGION FREE DVD-R RECORDABLE MEDIA.

Pinky (Jeanne Crain), a black woman who works as a nurse in Boston, finds she is able to pass for white. Afraid her true heritage will be discovered, she leaves her white fiance (William Lundigan) and returns home to Mississippi. There, she helps her ailing grandmother (Ethel Waters) by caring for her employer (Ethel Barrymore), an imperious plantation owner. When she names Pinky heiress to her estate, the community rises in resentment, triggering a sensational court trial. Subject of a landmark Supreme Court case in film censorship, this story about a mixed-race womans rights against prejudice, became itself, a battle for civil rights.
