This all-black 1943 musical was Vincente Minnelli's first assignment as a director, and while he doesn't succeed in completely legitimizing it, evidence of his taste and talent is sprinkled throughout. Full Review

Lustrous, gospel-folklore retelling of Faust Full Review

In only one of two moments, such as the stairway to heaven finale, is there any apparent effort to utilize the facilities of the camera. There are far too many closeups, particularly in the vocal numbers. Full Review

Rating: B+ -- Cabin In The Sky can feel a little claustrophobic and stage-bound, but it develops a jazzy, infectious rhythm (especially in its third act), and it's a rare treat to see so many supernovas of the black entertainment universe together in one movie. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- ...a suspect morality tale, yet once the performers grab ahold of the music, all that falls by the wayside. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Hollywood's first all-black film since The Green Pastures tells the vibrant fable of rascally Little Joe, torn between the love of his good wife Petunia and the wiles of good-time bad-girl Georgia Brown...and caught in a tug-of-war between emissaries from the Lord and Satan. How can virtue triumph over evil? Well, as Petunia says, "Sometimes when you fight the devil, you gotta jab him with his own pitchfork."
