Some info on her from IMDB-It's quite sad what black entertainers had to go through and still do even now.

While at MGM, her appearances in movies were shot so that they could be cut easily from the film. This was because MGM feared audiences of the day, (especially in the South, would not accept a beautiful black woman in romantic, non-menial roles. Many in the business believed that this was the main reason she lost out on playing the mulatto Julie in MGM's remake of Show Boat (1951). Ironically, the role was played by one of Lena's close off-screen friends, Ava Gardner, who practiced for it by singing to Horne's recordings of the songs, and Lena had already appeared in the "Show Boat" segment of Till the Clouds Roll By (1946), in which she appeared as Julie singing "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man" (which was, as all her MGM appearances, shot in such a way that filmed so that it could be removed easily). Another irony is that she had been invited by Jerome Kern and 'Oscar Hammerstein II (II)) (qv_ themselves to play Julie in the 1946 Broadway revival of "Show Boat", but had had to refuse because MGM would not release her from her contract.
