Description
Scott Carter is a skilled doctor – and a man without prospects. Rejection letters from hospitals pile up. His young wife is pregnant with their first child. Unable to land a job because of his race, Scott (Mel Ferrer) decides. “For one year of my life,” he says, “I’m going to be a white man.” That one year becomes two, then 10, then 20. But it’s still only a matter of time before Scott’s secret is out and he confronts racism in the New Hampshire town he’s served for decades.
A light-skinned black family passes for white in this powerful, fact-based tale. Produced by Louis de Rochemont, one of the most acclaimed filmmakers of the late 1940s, Lost Boundaries belongs to a forward-looking cluster of postwar films that declared war on society’s ills. Like Boomerang!, Pinky, Gentleman’s Agreement and others of the era, it resonates with conviction, proving great issues are the stuff of great filmmaking.

    Comments about this product:

    I happened to catch this movie on Dr. King's birthday on Turner Classics and had my children watch it with me, and later my husband. It was an amazing movie as it showed certain black people doing well in that era whose intellect was of the highest degree, but was being crushed by society's racist views. We were delighted to see black, white, asian and people of every color mixing in conversation at different functions without prejudice. The movie also showed the heartache experienced by the family trying to pass for white and when it was revealed, how it affected others in the small New England town.
