Night of the Quartermoon, (the color of her skin).
23 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here I am in 2007 replying to a post from the past, but whoever posted that first post was off! This movie was so true to life, it was scary to me, a Black-American, that it gave me chills. A friend has this movie in his "Black-Only" collection, along with other obscure movies I had never even heard of (such as "Up against the Wall" with Smokey Jackson)?? I ended up crying, wondering why any person of mixed heritage would go to such lengths to be accepted by another culture, especially one that is usually so adverse to the mixing of their blood with so called "inferiors", such as they called Black and other minority races! Love must surely be able to overcome many obstacles to flourish, but this is even too much heartache to have to live through, even for love! A very interesting and true to life story. The acting was wonderful, even if Julie London was only a singer, she seemed to convey the fact that she, as the character, loved above all else and John D. is just as good. His mother, played by Agnes Moorehead was a proper witch, and I wished someone would have looked into her background before we got to far into the movie, because of the saying "I think the lady doth protest too much". She may have had a touch of African blood in her lineage as well. I give this movie high marks for entertainment, and content.
