Editors Note
Note Musical fable about the forces of good vs. evil. A poor but devout and loving wife struggles to keep the soul of her shiftless husband out of the clutches of the devil. Vincente Minelli's first feature. Academy Award Nominations: Best Song ("Happiness Is a Thing Called Joe").
Plot Summary
Summary Little Joe Jackson is a simple down-home, married man. But he has three uncontrollable weaknesses: he loves shootin' craps, he drinks too much liquor and he's been lusting after sultry Georgia Brown, a sexy southern seductress just itchin' to get her hands on him. When he's fatally wounded in a barroom brawl, his gospel-quoting, hopelessly devoted wife Petunia prays by his bedside while Lucifer of Hell and the General of Heaven battle it out for ownership of Little Joe's soul.
Premiere "[With] inspired direction from Vincente Minnelli...and an engaging and more-multifaceted-than-usual turn by Eddie 'Rochester' Anderson..." 04/01/2006 p.99
