Vincente Minnelli's directorial debut was also the first ever 'black' musical, featuring Ethel Waters as a devoted wife, struggling to stop her shiftless husband (Eddie Anderson) being claimed by the Devil as he lays critically injured after a fight. She has her hands full, however, as Lucifer's envoy on Earth is the seductive Lena Horne, who does everything she can to lead the weak-willed husband down her wicked path. A host of musical numbers power the story along, performed by the likes of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Butterfly McQueen.
