Glamorous Lana Turner heads the outstanding cast in this second screen version of Fannie Hurst's emotionally-charged story about two widows and their troubled daughters. Turner is Lora, whose search for success as an actress causes her to neglect her daughter, Sandra Dee. Juanita Moore stars as Lora's black housekeeper whose daughter repudiates her mother by trying to pass for white. As the years pass, each of the four women realises that she has been living out an emotionally fruitless existence. This lavish Ross Hunter production, directed by Douglas Sirk (Magnificent Obsession), became one of Universal's biggest box office hits. With its dramatic colour photography, IMITATION OF LIFE remains a powerful four-handkerchief Hollywood classic.
