"Imitation of Life" airs on TCM tonight, 12/5 @ 8 p.m./ET. The 1959 version is remembered as Lana Turner's biggest comeback, but now receives praise or director Douglas Sirk's subtle take on racial tensions, commercial success, sexism, and more from the "fabulous '50s." Juanita Moore is the heart of this movie and Susan Kohner provides the dramatic tension. This film & "A Summer Place" also cemented Sandra Dee's stardom. Here's my look at this "Life."

And it could be remade and should go back to the depression years. Louise Beavers had more agency in her version of the story.
A remake could explore even more about the 4 women and less about the one character becoming a star. The 1936 movie is pretty good - Delilah makes MONEY - a lot - but the portrayal of the two black women could be more nuanced.

Annie was simply a background character in the movie. She was never developed, and ever shown having enough of a relationship with her daughter for me to care about it. I didn't care when Annie died, or about Sarah Jane's reaction to it. I thought the funeral was absolutely ridiculous and seemed really out of character for someone portrayed as modestly as Annie had been to want. Sarah Jane was a more interesting character but she was still made to know her place at the end of the movie, as r19 pointed out.

I saw Kohner speak once after a showing during which at some points idiots laughed. The kind that should be taken out to the lobby and shot.
She said nobody laughed when the movie opened but today we are all so much more sophisticated.
Kohner also said that the scene where Troy screams at her and beats her had to be reshot because the original was much more violent. The Las Vegas revue she appears in was an actual Las Vegas show. It was not designed for the film.
Dee is excellent she really shows her acting chops. And in the second half of the film the story of Annie and her daughter takes over so I don't know why anybody would prefer the first half of the film when it's preparing you for the emotional rollercoaster of the second.

Juanita Moore has an interview on youtube. She speaks of Lana in the highest terms. Lana despite her gowns and jewels ultimately gives the movie to her. Or lets her steal it whatever you prefer.
This is another Oscar loss that needs an Academy investigation. But then Kohner(who is quite wonderful) was nominated in the same category so they might have canceled each other out.
Another great Sirk film that is pretty subversive concerning American life in the 50s is There's Always Tomorrow with Stanwyck and MacMurray again surprising you with his dramatic power. The final image is chilling. And the genius of Sirk is that he could have it both ways. Give a sop to the audience who wanted a happy ending and make it a tragedy at the same time. And it's not in the screenplay. It's in the direction and filming.

As soon as he could, he enlisted in the Army and was sent to a base in Germany, but he got kicked out of there, too. At a screening of Douglas Sirk’s movie “Imitation of Life,” about an African-American girl who, to her grief, passed for white, a white soldier in the audience laughed. On his way out of the show, Pryor stabbed the offender with a switchblade. He got a month in the brig.

I think Juanita Moore is fine but it's easy to see why Shelley Winters won. First of all, she was excellent, and second, she was usually a sexy blonde in films, and was playing an actual woman who was later exterminated in the Holocaust, who was 20 years older than her. Nobody expected this performance from her. And it was a topical film, WWII was only 15 -20 years earlier. Juanita Moore was great as Annie but it was a women's picture, not an up to date drama about race relations. Annie died of a broken heart because her daughter rejected her in order to pass for white - based on an old weepie novel and movie from the 30s. I'm sure she got a lot of votes, though.

R54 Okay, 10 (or fewer) years. The role was considered a stretch, and she played one of the most memorable characters in the film.
The thing I didn't like about the 1959 Imitation Of Life vs the earlier version was that Annie was Lora's friend but also a psuedo-servant, not her business partner (who came up with the best-selling pancake batter) as in 1934. The movie takes place from the late 40s to the late 50s. It just seems very old fashioned. Granted there were many restrictions in society, then - but if Lora was a famous actress surely she could have had acquaintances in the business who were black - who she would have met socially, etc. Harry Belafonte, Lena Horne, whoever. Annie and Sarah Jane could have come to her parties and mingled as friends. The whole thing is weird, not existing in the real world of the time.

R58 Just a reminder, not all moviegoers were/are white. Also, just for the record, Hollywood films were/are shown all over the world. Perhaps they were made with a white audience in mind, but anyway, this takes place in New York starting in 1947, and not the segregated world of the earlier novel or film. Sarah Jane could have gone to a city or state college, for ex. NYC (Harlem) even had a black congressman, Adam Clayton Powell, since about 1947. I just think a lot of the concepts of the earlier book were carried over and it was all basically Ross Hunter make-believe rather than a study of the complex ways things were at the time, almost 1960.

It could be remade today, but only if presented as a tragedy of racism, Annie and her daughter are made the main characters, and it's set before the Civil Rights movement got big in the 1960s. Especially if they use the original plotline, where the white woman makes a fortune off of the black woman's pancake recipe, and the black woman agrees to let the white woman keep all the money, doesn't even ask for her due, just settles for a maid's job for life. Which is incredibly hard to believe in this money-oriented day and age, but as systematic oppression can destroy the self-esteem and self-confidence of individuals, not completely implausible.
So yes, someone could make a story about a white woman taking financial advantage of a black woman, and the black woman accepting it without complaint, and the black woman's light-skinned daughter deciding to pass. Not that I'd be interested in seeing that movie, I'm only interested in the 1950s version for the camp value, but a new version could fit today's zeitgeist.

R83, the original story was written in the 1933 by a white woman, and during that time it was considered admirable for women and POC to be modest, self-effacing, financially naive, and trusting, It was considered okay, or even admirable for a woman to turn down money and to trust others to take care of her, a least by many, although I doubt author Edna Ferber conducted her own business affairs that way!
I haven't read the movie, and haven't seen the 1930s movies in ages, so I honestly don't know if the original story's perspective is that it's virtuous for a woman to trust others to take care of her financially, or if the reader is expected to decry the foolishness of someone letting others capitalize on their work without a struggle. I think Ferber was basically progressive, at least by the standards of her time, and a lot of her stories decry the old-fashioned attitudes towards women and POC that she'd had to live with.

[quote]I doubt author Edna Ferber conducted her own business affairs that way!
R84 As someone already said, the author was Fannie Hurst, not Edna Ferber, though they shared certain similarities. Hurst was definitely interested in social justice and racial equality.
I usually think when I read or see something, a character is just one person, and there are all kinds of people. Delilah might seem like a wimp, maybe another black woman of the time, in the same situation, wouldn't be a wimp. People today seem to see characters more as archetypes than mere individuals. Maybe it's the influence of all the comic book movies.
Hurst stated that her novel was written because of a "consciousness" that came from how African-American soldiers had fought for their country in World War I even though they were discriminated against at home.
[quote]Hurst was a Jewish woman and supporter of feminist causes. She also supported African Americans in their struggle for greater equality. She was deeply involved in the Harlem Renaissance, especially with Zora Neale Hurston. Hurst helped sponsor Hurston in her first year at Barnard College and employed Hurston briefly as an executive secretary. The two traveled together on road trips that may have contributed to Hurst's understanding of racial discrimination. Both Hurston and Langston Hughes claimed to like Imitation of Life, though both reversed their opinion after Sterling Allen Brown lambasted both the book and the 1934 film adaptation in a review entitled "Imitation of Life: Once a Pancake", a reference to a line in the first film.

Susan Kohler was the sleeper standout in this film, she did an excellent job with the material and was gorgeous. And to me this film is the quintessential Lana The Star, where she brought all her accumulated previous Hollywood luminosity and MGM acting glamour to full-throttle display. A film that really makes you feel Annie’s motherly heartbreak for her estranging daughter and Sarah Jane’s frustration and anger about who she is versus who she wants to be. Turner’s and Dee’s characters in this remake just make the viewer feel reinforced how lucky those two are with their superficial heartaches and worries, as a backdrop to the realer life hurdles that Annie and Sarah Jane saw and felt around them, IMO.
