Description
At Last on the Screen! The Musical Comedy Sensation!

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."

Debuting movie director Vincente Minnelli (An American in Paris, Gigi) and stars Ethel Waters, Eddie "Rochester" Anderson, Lena Horne, Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington are more than a match for the devil in this musical treasure. With a soundtrack of dazzling standards including Taking a Chance on Love and Happiness Is a Thing Called Joe, Cabin in the Sky is a joyous classic.

      Another great movie from the 40's that teaches a truthful lesson on life; every decision we make will have a consequence affect on our lives and in many cases the lives of others also. It was a fun movie to watch with a positive ending. Watch, learn, and enjoy!

        Although this is a great movie, it does reveal the overt racial stereotypes that were extant at the time of its making. But that is of educational value for viewers.

          I love this movie. It is one of the first African-American movies that I can recall seeing. As a child, the actors were the first black actors that I knew of. It hits all aspects of life of a poor black family during that period of time.

            Classic moral dilemma of choosing between right and wrong. Great example of how our actions can affect others. Delightful songs. Great cast.

              Comments about this product:

              Ethel Waters is warm and wonderful. The score and songs are great. The story is a bit baroque (in the sense of an oddly-shaped pearl), but it is funny and warm. Louis Armstrong and the others in the devil's Idea Department are a riot.

                The music, storyline and comedy parts of it were great. Because of some "more adult" type scenes, I believe it should be rated PG instead of G.
