Cannot remember the name of a film, possible black and white, about a white mum and daughter who have a good relationship with their servant and her daughter. The black woman looks after the white daughter when the white mum goes off the tracks. The end of the film I remember a funeral for the black mum with white horses and the runaway black daughter turns up for the funeral. The white daughter falls in love with her mums boyfriend.

    Hi there!

    That is an easy one, because it is one of my favorite movies.

    Imitation of Life, with Lana Turner, as the white mother, Sandra Dee as the white daughter, Susan Kohner as the black daughter, and Juanita Moore as the black mother, John Gavin played the boyfriend. The black daughter is passing for white, and that is what causes the rift between the mother and daughter.
    In 1947, Lora Meredith (Lana Turner), a struggling white widow with the plan to become a famous Broadway actress, sacrifices tail of her young daughter Suzie at the beach (portrayed as a child by Terry Burnham), and asks the assistance of a stranger named Steve Archer (John Gavin) towards assistance her encounter the girl. Suzie is located and glanced as soon as via Annie Johnson (Juanita Moore), a black widow with a daughter, Sarah Jane (portrayed as a child via Karin Dicker), whom is approximately Suzie's age and, unlike her mother, is very light-skinned towards the degree of appearing to be white. In replace for her kindness, Lora robs Annie within temporarily. Despite the fact that Lora cannot afford a nanny, Annie persuades Lora towards lent her stay and rob care of Suzie, so that Lora can chase an acting career.
