Otto Preminger’s CARMEN JONES

Straight-arrow Joe (Harry Belafonte), an obedient corporal on a Southern military base during World War II, is all set to go to flight school and marry his hometown sweetie, Cindy Lou (Olga James), when his troublemaking sergeant orders him to accompany Carmen Jones (Dorothy Dandridge) to a civilian court. In short order, Joe is swept up in Carmen's anarchy and her craving for release from lousy options in life. An impulsive act of violence ensures that Joe's future is gone forever, putting Carmen in the difficult position of destroying their relationship to save him.
