Based on a successful Broadway show, Vincente Minnelli’s first film as a director tells the story of Little Joe, a gambler given the chance to redeem his soul, which is being fought over by the Lord’s Angel and Lucifer Jr, who makes him rich with a lottery win, and tempts him with gold-digger Georgia Brown. Music is provided by Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and Lena Horne.
