Overview

Featuring an all-star, all-African-American cast, Cabin plays like a gospel reworking of Faust and the Wizard of Oz. Lena Horne is captivating in her first starring role, but at the film’s warm heart is Ethel Waters who, like Horne, rarely got the parts she deserved. Here she’s exceptional as a middle-aged woman ‘Taking a Chance on Love’.
