    Pinky (20th Century Fox, 1949). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Director Elia Kazan took on a hot topic well ahead of its time when he cast Jeanne Crain as a light-skinned black woman in "Pinky". The story revolved around a black girl who had attended nursing school in the northeastern US by passing for white. When she returns home to the South she is resentful of the way she is treated as an unequal of whites. John Ford had actually started the picture but had to leave the production due to an illness. The film was a major coup for Kazan who used the film to set the stage for his career as a director of message films. Very Fine-.
