"...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..."

Description by OLDIES.com:

Powered by George Bizet's grand music and Oscar Hammerstein II's magnificent lyrics, this Americanized all-black version of the classic opera Carmen is "a dynamic, superb show" with a positively "incandescent Carmen." (Newsweek)

Oscar-nominee Dorothy Dandridge stars in the title role, a passionate, sexy creature who lures Joe (Harry Belafonte) a handsome solider, away from his sweetheart (Olga James). Following a fatal brawl with his sergeant, Joe deserts his regiment with the sultry femme fatale. But Carmen soon tires of him and takes up with a heavyweight prize-fighter (Joe Adams), triggering Joe's tragic revenge. Helping to set the screen on fire are Pearl Bailey and Diahann Carroll, part of the "sensational troupe" that makes this jubilant musical film "hard to beat." (Los Angeles Times)

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.
