VINE VOICEon July 23, 2015
Colorful, powerful and innovative movie musical from 1954 that took Bizet's popular opera "Carmen," set it during the middle of World War II in a parachute factory, made the lead male Joe (Harry Belafonte) a G.I. about to go to flying school, and preseved the tunes and orchestrations with fresh new lyrics. Dorothy Dandridge is simply unbelievable in the title role (one critic described her as the "only actress who could sizzle by standing still"), and a bright cast including Pearl Bailey and a very young Diahann Carroll round out the fun. Produced by Oscar Hammerstein and considered quite daring in its day -- holds considerable entertainment value now. A must for Dandrige fans, and for those who want to explore all facets of Fifties Hollywood musicals.

It's a musical. It has black people in it-- with real dialogue, solos, dances, wardrobes other than maid uniforms. Sold.

Although those aren't my only requirements for a noteworthy production...it does help tip the scales. Dorothy is sexy, and a little dangerous. A woman can take notes. Belafonte... well that's probably description enough. The cast is alive and colorful.

My 6 year old daughter watches this film a if she is intensely studying for a role...which I'm not ruling out. Imagine what it does for her to see people that look like her dancing and singing and living a life with dimension. It still does that for me.

"Carmen Jones" is a great re-interpretation of the famous Bizet opera, Carmen. Dorothy Dandridge and Harry Belafonte are WONDERFUL in their respective roles, and the entire cast really puts a new spin on this story. My only complaint is that I wish that Dandridge's own voice had been used in the film. Other than that, this is a great film that classic film lovers should definitely own!

The music and filming were outstanding. It was hard to take Harry going the way of the composer.

I love this movie although the ending is sad. Great choice for a retro movie night with the girls.
