Loretta Young and Charles Boyer make for an interesting pairing (though Boyer hardly seems the obvious choice for a mixed race character. However, the theme of bigotry because of race and unrequited love between two people was very well done. Also, the dialogue of how society perceives their romantic entanglement made for effective storytelling and formed the basis of this story. Both leads are really strong in this tale and Loretta is at her most beautiful both in appearance and strength of character. This was viewed online and the print was really good. Though they were not paired at the end, the meaning of why they were separated was very touching and bittersweet.This is worth a look and should have wider distribution.
