Still shot from the movie: Pinky.


Born with skin light enough to pass for white, Pinky Johnson (Jeanne Crain) has denied her black heritage while attending a northern nursing school. Returning to the south, she is faced with living a lie and disappointing her Grandmother (Ethel Waters), or accepting the truth and giving up the man she loves. Oddly, it's a harder decision than it at first appears. Get the movie review and more. »

The unfair treatment of African-Americans by the judicial system also plays a part in the script of To Kill a Mocking Bird. The belief that skin color is an indication of intelligence plays a crucial role in the way Australian Aboriginals are treated in the film Rabbit-Proof Fence. The cast system of the Old South is captured in the movie Gone With The Wind.
