In 1967, laws banning interracial relations were officially repealed in the United States by a Supreme Court ruling in the case of “Living against Virginia.” Just a few months after the release of this decision, the film “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” was released, starring Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier and Catherine Hepburn. This film was one of the few where interracial relationships or marriage were portrayed. According to a review of “Variety” by AD Murphy, since its release, the film was considered a “milestone in its tasteful introduction to the screen of sensitive materials.”
