IMITATION OF LIFE with special guest Prof. Xiomara Santamarina “Imitation of Life” is based on the 1933 best-selling novel by Fannie Hurst named “Imitation of Life.” The book was controversial because it uses the characters and storyline to address the racial, sexual, and class prejudices that existed during the time. The 1934 movie version of “Imitation of Life” was a big hit. Because of the commercial success of the original “Imitation of Life” movie, a newer version was made in 1959. Rating: Approved Genre(s): Drama
