I saw this movie on TV as a child, and I remember being very moved by it. It could only have been a few years after it was released. I have waited years to see it again and have never had the opportunity.I have asked many people about it and have never met anyone else who saw it!

Highly recommended as an accurate snapshot of a moment in time. Quite daring for it's time, also, as it predates "Guess who's coming to dinner". It's highly poignant ending still makes me emotional after all these years. I hope it is released on DVD as it is a film that deserves to be viewed. I wasn't aware that the screenplay had won an Oscar- brilliant!
