A complex contract with the legendary Dandridge and the studio, coming on the heels of her triumph in Carmen Jones, for which she won an Academy Award nomination for best actress — the first Afro-American woman to be so honored. The two films eventually became Island in the Sun (1957), with James Mason, Joan Collins, Joan Fontaine, and Harry Belafonte; and Scent of Danger (later Moment of Danger, 1960), which was her next-to-last appearance in film, before her tragic death in 1965.
