Pinky (1949)
















Starring:


Storyline
Pinky, a young nurse (Jeanne Crain), returns to her small southern hometown, but the trip is a bittersweet one: Educated in the North, Pinky is engaged to a doctor that doesn't know she is part Black. Her grandmother (Ethel Waters) is a proud Black woman who is less than happy to learn that Pinky's fiance is white. Then, Pinky's friendship with a southern aristocrat (Ethel Berrymore), is cause for more scandal-and a lawsuit-when she dies and leaves her house to Pinky. Shunned by both Blacks and Whites, Pinky's choices make her the unfortunate target of bigotry in this compelling classic.
