Synopsis:
This sizzling screen version of Bizet's opera Carmen, updated for an all-black cast, stars Dorothy Dandridge, whose vibrant performance resulted in the first Oscar nomination for a black actress. She stars in the title role as a passionate sexy creature who lures handsome Gl Joe (Harry Belafonte) away from his sweetheart (Olga James) Following a brawl with his sergeant, Joe deserts his regiment with the sultry femme fatale. Carmen soon tires of him and takes up with a heavyweight prize-fighter (Joe Adams), triggering Joe's tragic revenge.
