Hallelujah review Product Description
This pioneering musical tells the tragedy-laced tale of a naive farmer who falls for a deceitful beauty.
The first all-black film produced by a major studio, HALLELUJAH represented the culmination of King Vidor's long-standing desire to do a project dealing with the lives of African Americans, strongly influenced by his childhood experience in Galveston, Texas. ...See Full Description
Hallelujah movie Customer Reviews
I guess for its time its a good movie. I just hate the why African Americans were portrayed. I loved the subject matter just hated they way we are portrayed like we are lazy and stupid.
By debbiec (L.A.)
Hallelujah, with it's all Black cast, is a wonderful film that depicts certain aspects of the life experience of our people who lived in the southern states during that time of our history.

Hallelujah DVD Features
Hallelujah is a cinematic milestone: the first all-black feature from a major studio and famed director King Vidor's (The Champ, The Big Parade) first talkie. But the film surpasses its historical significance, telling a story of such profound dignity and understanding that it as fresh and moving as the day it premiered.
Featuring a largely unknown cast and infused with spirituals, folk songs, blues and jazz (Irving Berlin provided two songs for the production), Hallelujah follows the fortunes of Zeke (Daniel L. Haynes), a poor cotton farmer. He succumbs to the temptations of Chick (Nina Mae McKinney), a mercenary honky-tonk girl, finds salvation in religion, and falls again when his obsession for Chick overpowers his better self. Love, loss, passion, redemption and brilliant moviemaking: Hallelujah has it all.
