Hollywood's first all-black film since The
Green Pastures which became a Musical Comedy Sensation! Petunia Jackson (Ethel Waters) has been struggling to get her husband Joe (Eddie Anderson) to give up gambling and lead a righteous life who is torn between the love of his good wife Petunia and the wiles of good-time bad girl Georgia Brown (Lena Horne.) Petunia appears to have finally succeeded, but when a relapse puts his life in danger he finds heaven and hell battling for his soul. There are good songs with Lena Horne, Ethel Waters, Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. Overall a very good film for all.
