Synopsis Scripted in another era, the premise for this interesting though conventional drama defending a partially mixed marriage would not be as convincing a few decades later. Chuck Nelson (John Drew Barrymore) is a wealthy young man who travels South of the border and meets and then marries Ginny (Julie London).
The movie was obviously inspired by an infamous 1924 court trial that rocked the nation (Rhinelander v. Rhinelander) and although attitudes towards interracial marriage hadn't progressed much in 35 years, change was on the horizon and NIGHT OF THE QUARTER MOON was given a hopeful ending that didn't happen in real life.
