Movies with inter-racial themes
I watched - (bits of, in between tennis) an old 1961 film called 'Majority of One' with Alec Guiness as a Japanese man and the theme was an inter-racial romance with a Jewish American woman, but how staid and polite everyone was! About the same time there was a film with Harry Belafonte 'Island in the Sun'. Later on inter-racial themes like this were numerous such as 'Guess who's coming to dinner' and the films based on Marguerite Duras's stories - 'Hiroshima mon Amour' and 'The Lover'. Even later on inter-racial romances were barely noticed as such, e.g. 'The Bodyguard'. An excellent Australian film 'Japanese Story' can be added to the list.
Do these kind of films shock some people today though?
