USA Today - 01/25/2002
"...CARMEN JONES still benefits from a star-power performance that made lead Dorothy Dandridge the first black performer to get a best-actress Oscar nomination..."

Product Description:

A sizzling screen version of Bizet's Carmen updated for an all-black cast, including an especially sizzling Dandridge. Soldier Belafonte falls for Dandridge, a seductive factory worker. The lovers flee after the soldier kills his sergeant, but Carmen's taunting faithlessness drives her lover to a crime of passion. Hammerstein provided lyrics for Bizet's melodies, and Preminger added the snap. If you're curious what all the fuss over Dandridge is about, catch this.

Plot Synopsis:

Screen version of the musical "Carmen Jones," which adapted Bizet's opera "Carmen" for an African-American cast. Army soldier Joe falls in love with Carmen, a beautiful and seductive factory worker. When he kills his sergeant during a fight, the ill-fated lovers flee to escape the police. But Carmen's faithlessness and selfishness eventually surface, and she rejects Joe for another man. But he can't let her go, and his obsessive love ultimately leads to tragedy.
