The classic car market continued to cruise in high gear over the weekend at the annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance. Nearly $67 million worth of rare machinery changed hands at auction while a pair of lesser-known, ultra-rare marques took home the show's most prestigious trophies. The Amelia concours event has been held on the Florida island every year since 1996, and has donated over $2.25 million to charity in that time. Although not quite on par with the Pebble Beach auto week held in August, the Amelia event is considered one of the more prestigious classic car shows in the U.S. This year, attendance grew to more than 29,000 people -- up from 25,000 in 2013 -- and featured 325 cars on display during the show, organizers said.

An April 4 letter ("Edwards Broke Barriers First") alleged that the teaming of James Edwards and Lloyd Bridges in "Home of the Brave" (1949) was the first time a black actor shared equal billing with a white star and, furthermore, that it was "the first time a black actor played a role (in a motion picture) other than that of a servant." Sixteen years before "Home of the Brave," Paul Robeson played the title role in the motion-picture adaptation of Eugene O'Neill's "The Emperor Jones," and, as the title suggests, he did not play a servant.
