In fact, a movie about life Hattie McDanielShe is famous around the world for being Mami Gone with the Wind. She was also the first African-American actress to win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. To play McDaniel in the movie it will be Raven Goodwin.
Obviously, the movie will also be an opportunity to tell the racism that McDaniel has had to contend with throughout his life. The chosen title is also important in this sense: Behind the smile. An episode above all of McDaniel’s life will definitely find room in the movie, too: During the Oscars, she wasn’t allowed to sit in the audience with all of the other participants due to apartheid. However, the actress has also been accused by her community for her decision to take on stereotypical roles of maid or slave in movies. Hattie McDaniel died in 1952 at the age of 57 from breast cancer.
