Caught In The Rhelm Of Confusion....
13 August 2001 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

If "I Passed For White" was released today it would stur up quite a storm! Imagine not knowing what race to identify yourself with? The character of "ETHEL" gives a touching performance as a GAL that just does not know which way to turn! A B movie that few have seen this classic is alot of fun!
