ABOUT THE FILM

If less famous than Douglas Sirk’s 1959 remake, the first screen adaptation of Fannie Hurst’s novel may be the stronger in its exploration of social issues. Claudette Colbert and Louise Beavers star as single mothers who through the years build a successful business together despite the era’s racial restrictions – and the desire of Beavers’ daughter to pass for white. Nominated for three Oscars, including Best Picture, and named to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 2005.
