Scar of shame: In no film was the racial theme more apparent than in this story about an ill-matched marriage between a black concert painist and a poor, lower class black woman. Secretly ashamed of her, the young man keeps his wife hidden from his socially-prominent middle-class mother. Despite the melodrama, it is a strong statement on the issues of class and the color caste system which existed within the African-American community. This was the first film of the Colored Players Film Corp. of Philadelphia

Ralph 124C 41+ : a romance of the year 2660 by Hugo Gernsback( Book )

2 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the year 2660, science has transformed and conquered the world, rescuing humanity from itself. Spectacular inventions from the farthest reaches of space and deep beneath the earth are available to meet every need, providing antidotes to individual troubles and social ills. Inventors are highly prized and respected, and they are jealously protected and lavishly cared for by world governments. That support and acclaim, however - as the most brilliant of scientists, Ralph 124C 41+, discovers - is not without its price."--Jacket
