Bright Road

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1953. Set of 4 original lobby cards for the 1953 film "Bright Road," based on the Christopher Award winning story "See How They Run," written by Mary Elizabeth Vroman, and first published in 1951 in the Ladies' Home Journal.

Notable for its nearly all-black cast, "Bright Road" stars Dorothy Dandridge as an Alabama schoolteacher intent on motivating one of her more lackluster students. Dandridge is said to have accepted the role because of the film's lack of racial tension as a central theme. As a result, she hoped that young women of all colors could identify with her character. Harry Belafonte's debut feature film.

14 x 11 inches. Both lobby cards quite clean with no pinholes, about Near Fine.
