Aroview: Landmark musical presents a 'faux-negro' folk story accompanied by the sophisticated musicianship of Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and others.
Essentially a tale of good and evil - with the soul of 'Little Joe' the prize - this is elaborated in some classic dance sequences by first time dir. Minnelli. Still fascinating and worth a viewing, if its weaknesses can be overlooked.
