Summary A film in which the conventions of the woman's weepie' are manipulated in a melodramatic schema of American class and race relations. An ironic success story, the rise of Lana Turner from housewife to actress, in the first half, merges into intensified melodrama on the theme of race and identity as a light skinned black woman tries to pass as white.
