Cabin in the Sky (1943)

Vincente Minnelli's directorial debut stars Eddie "Rochester" Anderson as Little Joe Jackson, a man torn between his devoted wife (Ethel Waters) and a sexy seductress (Lena Horne). When Joe is seriously injured in a barroom brawl, the General of Heaven (Kenneth Spencer) and Lucifer Jr. (Rex Ingram) engage in an epic battle for his soul. This all-black film based on the hit Broadway musical received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song.
Genre: musical
I loved this movie... the story, the acting, the singing, I especially enjoyed Ethel Waters. What a great talent! I also LOVED that she was a plus sized actress and her clothes were so stylish. I want ALL of them :)
