A year before they shot to stardom in Carmen Jones, Dorothy Dandridge and Harry Belafont made this inspiring film about a gifted educator and a lost boy. Dandridge plays Jane Richards, a fourth-grade teacher concerned about young C.T. (Philip Hepburn), astudent whose indifference to school has even the principal (screen-debuting Belafont) calling him a backwards child. Troubles as typical as a schoolyard brawl and as tragic as a classmates death drive C.T. further into his shell. But Jane perseveres,hoping to help her student develop the same way a caterpillar, in a cocoon C.T. guards, turns into a butterfly. One of the few mainstream films of its era to have a largely African-American cast, Bright Road boasts impressive talents behind the camera as well as on the screen, including director of photography Alfred Gilks, lensing his first feature-length film since winning an Academy Award* for An American in Paris. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.
