Stanley Kramer's Guess Who's Coming To Dinner's groundbreaking story deals with interracial marriage. Interracial marriage has been illegal in most of the USA, and was still illegal in seventeen southern American states up until June 12 of the year of the film's release. Because of this, I have been intrigued to see the message the film was going to send. Guess Who's Coming To Dinner is a beautifu... read more

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner is a little heavy-handed, slightly clumsy in its dealings with racial issues and family strife, but it comes complete with wonderful performances.

" Notes: First of all, it is important to remember that this movie was made already 50 years ago and, back in those days, the story was actually quite ground-breaking. Indeed, even if it seems hard to believe, at the time, it was actually forbidden by the law to marry someone white if you were black and the other way around in 14 states so, only for this reason, this movie was really important and should be respected. Still, I’m afraid it does feel rather outdated nowadays and all the characte"

" Sidney Poitier as John Prentice and Katherine Houghton as Joanna Drayton Twenty-three year old Joanna Drayton's unannounced early return from her Hawaiian vacation causes a stir when she brings her new fiancé to her upper-class family home in San Francisco. He is John Prentice: a 37-year-old black (the 1967 dialogue uses the term Negro throughout) physician and medical professor, whom she met just 10 days prior, whose first wife and young son were killed in a train accident eight years earlier"
