Actresses, like Juanita Moore, who paved the way for today's black actresses. Juanita Moore as Annie Johnson in “Imitation of Life” (1959) Oscars Nomination, Black Actresses, Hollywood Living, Annie Johnson, Juanita Moore, 1959 Version, Life 1959, Daughters Happy, Imitation Of Life
Imitation Of Life (1934 w/Louis Beavers & Claudette Colbert & 1959 w/Juanita Moore & Lana Turner). Highly recommend both. I saw the '59 version when I was 10 or 11-my first realization of the concept of "passing." Saw the '34 version as an adult & saw it in a much different light. Love them both for different reasons. Just watch it.
