Alfred E. Green
This was from abokay that was originally written for a Polish American family, but was actually first produced by the American Negro Theater, after being re written by The American Negro Theatre director Abram Hill and director Henry Wagstaff Gribble for an all African American cast See more »
Paulette Goddard, once more, shows her ability to take a slow script and one note character and bring life and substance to the role. She's the star of this drama and brings her own unique quality of glamour to Anna. There is a fine supporting cast and it is always nice to see Mary Wickes given a real role to play other than the usual wise-cracking parts she gets. I liked Goddard's interpretation above Eartha Kitt's in a latter version of the same play. Goddard shows she still has the stuff stars are made of. Quite a gal!
