Ethel Waters (1896-1977)

  1. Flora Robson, Saratoga Trunk, 1943.  MGM refused to loan Warner Brothers two black stars – Ethel and Lena Horne – for roles in the film of Edna Ferber’s typically rambling 1941 novel. Ingrid Bergman olayed the part aimed at Lena and Britain’s Flora Robson became  Angelique.
  2. Juanita Moore, Imitation of Life, 1958.     The perfect title for any of the soaps ilathered by producer Ross Hunter and director Doiuglas Sirlk.  At first, Hunter had planned a musical rehash (!) of the 1933 weepie, to star the 1953 Oscar-winner, Shirley Booth and the great gospel singer, once billed as Mama Stringbean.
