Powered by George Bizet's grand music and Oscar Hammerstein II's magnificent lyrics, this Americanized all-black version of the classic opera "Carmen" is "a dynamic...superb show" with a positively "Incandescent Carmen" (Newsweeek). Oscar nominee Dorothy Dandrige stars in the title role, a passionate, sexy creature who lures Joe (Harry Belafonte) a handsome soldier, away from his sweetheart (Olga James). Following a fatal brawl with his sergeant, Joe deserts his regiment with the sultry femme fatale. But Carmen soon tires of him and takes up with a heavyweight prize-fighter (Joe Adam), triggering Joe's tragic revenge. Helping to set the screen on fire are Pearl Bailey and Diahann Carroll, part of the "sensational troupe" that makes this jubilant musical film "hard to beat" (Los Angeles Times).
