100 Movie Musicals #15: Cabin in the Sky (1943)

Hamfisted moral fable about a gambler trying to get into heaven while an angel and Lucifer’s son fight over his soul. A stacked cast, and some great songs, but what a weird, stodgy morality. Heck of a visual aesthetic, but it’s got kind of the same tone as Once Upon A Honeymoon, if you’ve seen that short. The ending tends toward the apocalyptic before retreating with one of the most thorough fizzles I’ve ever seen.
