This film stars Mel Ferrer as a light-skinned African-American, whose family is “passing” in an all-white New England community. When the truth comes out, the more bigoted neighbors demand the expulsion of Ferrer and his family.

Starts off kind of slow, but is a rewarding film. Its odd to see whites and hispanics playing supposed light skinned blacks, but it was a different time in Hollywood then. The message of the film is simple, but timeless. Worth a look
