Edna M. Harris - Rotten Tomatoes

Edna M. Harris



American stage actress Edna Mae Harris made her first film appearance as Zeba in The Green Pastures (1936). Like most black performers in 1930s Hollywood, Harris found it hard to get worthwhile roles in mainstream films. She did rather better in those low-budget pictures aimed at "colored" audiences, playing leads in such productions as The Spirit of Youth (a 1938 vehicle for boxer Joe Louis), Paradise in Harlem, and Murder on Lennox Avenue. Edna Mae Harris apparently retired in 1943.
