Cabin in the Sky
Starring: Ethel Waters, Lena Horne,
Eddie "Rochester" Anderson
Director: Vincente Minnelli
EVERYONE IN THE FILM SEEMS TOUCHED BY SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY." - Ethan Mordden, The Hollwood Musical
Hollywood's first all-black film since The Green Pastures tells the vibrant fable of rascally Little Joe, torn
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 Elligton 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, Cabinin the Sky is a joyous classic.
Price: $19.99 [DVD only]
