They Were Kidding, Right?
20 October 2005 | by (West Virginia) – See all my reviews

Put two schlock masters together, Albert Zugsmith (producer) and Hugo Haas (director) and you come up with a total mess of a movie. This film is grotesque, even more so because it was made at MGM. Thankfully, it was the last time that these two gentlemen ever got their foot in the door of a major studio.

Basically, the story is about a young woman, who has African-American heritage but "passes" for Caucasian. She is played by the glacially beautiful Julie London, better known as a popular singer than a film star. She marries John Drew Barrymore, who just could never parlay his famous name, except as the son of John Sr. and the father of Drew. His character is from a socially prestigious family and when they discover that Ms. London is not "racially pure", you would think that World War III was imminent. The newspapers blow the whistle on her, her black relatives are beaten up and she ends up in court, stripping to prove that her skin is white. Absolutely unpleasant.....this film is exploitation at its worst and MGM should have been ashamed to release it. It's unbelievable.
