Cabin in The Sky with Eddie "Rochester" Anderson
« on: February 16, 2013, 09:53:59 PM »
I was up early today waiting for a repairman and Cabin in The Sky happened to be on TV. I usually would have skipped past it but it starred Jack Benny's Rochester himself, Eddie Anderson, as a gambling man whose soul is coveted by both heaven and hell. Turned out to be pretty good, once you accept all the stereotypical portrayals. Check it out if you have some time. Funny thing is, although he is the protagonist, this trailer never shows or names him once!


Before anyone asks, he is not playing Rochester.

I always mean to see this. I think it was one of the first musicals with an all black cast, if I remember right.
