When compulsive gambler Little Joe (Eddie Anderson, AKA Jack Benny s Rochester) dies in a fight, heaven and hell compete for his soul. Will he stay with his loyal wife (singing star Ethel Waters) or go with a sultry songstress (Lena Horne)? Hit songs like Taking a Chance on Love and Happiness Is a Thing Called Joe alongside performances by the Hall Johnson Choir and the Duke Ellington band add to the delight of this all-black musical.
