Plot & Details

The three-part, 180-minute British miniseries The File on Jill Hatch was based on an all-too-real byproduct of WWII: the plight of young British women who'd been married, then abandoned (often involuntarily), by black American GIs. The ramifications of one such union stretched some 40 years in the course of the story, with heartbreak, ostracization, and occasional triumph along the way. Cassandra Murray and Penny Johnson were seen as both the young and old Jill Hatch, while the supporting cast included such prominent African-American performers as Gloria Foster and Lynne Thigpen. The File on Jill Hatch was shown over the BBC in 1983.
