Frontline producer June Cross tells her own emotional story of pride, prejudice, and the search for her identity in Frontline: Secret Daughter. This documentary, brought to video by PBS, highlights the dramatic steps taken to hide the truth of a daughter of mixed ethnicity. Sent at age four to live with a "black" family in Atlantic City because of an abusive father, Cross spent her youth growing up in the bosom of middle-class America. When her mother remarried F-Troop star Larry Storch, the family reunited under the false pretense of Cross being adopted, a lie intended to protect Storch's flourishing acting career. With interviews with famed performers such as Jerry Lewis, the story details the racial bias within postwar Hollywood.
