Plot

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 thirty-seven-year-old black (the dialogue uses the term Negro throughout) physician and medical professor, whom she had met just 10 days prior. A widower, he had lost his first wife and young son eight years earlier when they were killed in a train accident.
