Description
Here on one DVD are both versions of the film based on Fannie Hurst's bestselling 1933 novel about two widows—one white, one black—and their troubled daughters. In the first film—made in 1934—Claudette Colbert plays a driven actress whose ambition causes her to neglect her daughter; Louise Beavers is Colbert's maid, whose light-skinned daughter passes herself off as white—much to her mother's shame. The film earned three Academy Award nominations including Best Picture. Douglas Sirk remade the film 25 years later, casting Lana Turner in Colbert's role and Juanita Moore as her maid, and coaxed Oscar-nominated performances from Moore and Susan Kohner, who played her daughter.
