75th Anniversary! A hapless gambler (Anderson) is intercepted on his way to Hell and given a second chance at life with a 6-month reprieve and an opportunity to reform and earn his way into Heaven – though Lucifer Jr. (Ingram) has other plans. Though this film, and STORMY WEATHER, are not free from racist depictions and minstrelsy, the success of both titles – with black and white audiences alike – helped break barriers and convince Hollywood that African-American performers could succeed as leads in a major film.
CABIN IN THE SKY (1943) dir Vincente Minnelli w/Eddie ‘Rochester’ Anderson, Ethel Waters, Lena Horne, Rex Ingram, Kenneth Spencer, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and His Orchestra [98 min; 35mm]
