Leonard Maltin Ratings & Review



LEONARD MALTIN MOVIE RATING













3 out of 4 Stars


LEONARD MALTIN MOVIE REVIEW:


D: Vincente Minnelli. Eddie ``Rochester'' Anderson, Lena Horne, Ethel Waters, Louis Armstrong, Rex Ingram, Duke Ellington and His Orchestra, The Hall Johnson Choir. Stellar black cast in winning (if somewhat racist) musical fable about forces of good and evil vying for the soul of Little Joe (Anderson). John Bubbles' dancing, Waters singing ``Happiness Is a Thing Called Joe'' (written for the film) among musical highlights. First feature for Minnelli (who, with Waters and Ingram, came from the Broadway production).
