Critic Reviews:

  • " Preminger's heavy-handed adaptation of a Broadway triumph combines gorgeous music with risible lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II; the project is saved by a terrific cast. " – TV Guide
  • " The best reason to revisit Carmen Jones lies in Dorothy Dandridge's e­lectrifying performance, which saw her become the first African-American to be nominated for a Best Actress Oscar. " – Tom Dawson (BBC.com)
  • " Interesting Preminger experiment. Modernizing with an all-black cast highlighted by Dandridge and Belafonte is first-rate. " – Bob Bloom (Journal and Courier – Lafayette, IN)
