Product Description:

A family fears they are going to lose their maid and confidante to the business world. The children decide on matchmaking, and with a little blackmailing, entice secret gambler Poitier to date her. All with difficult results, but a happy ending. This film is notable for its ground-breaking portrayal of a relationship between African American actors. Academy Award Nominations: Best Song ("For Love of Ivy").

Plot Synopsis:

Ivy Moore, a black housekeeper in a white household, has grown weary of domestic service. She dreams of leaving her sterile lifestyle and Long Island residence for big city living and a series of adventures on the road to self-discovery. Her employers, however, are loath to lose her. They've even offered Ivy a trip to Africa as an incentive to stay in their employ. But just when it looks like she's about to leave, one of her employer's children finds the one person who could make her stay: Jack Parks, a handsome, eligible bachelor who'd be a perfect match for Ivy.
