Movie Info

A seductive young woman in a religious community of black sharecroppers manipulates an innocent man into committing murder. Although reflecting its era's racism, this film is a remarkable attempt to depict black life realistically and sympathetically. Shot as a silent, with sound dubbed in later.

Audience Reviews for Hallelujah

  • May 01, 2016
    It is admirable that Vidor wanted to show "the Southern Negro as he is" in this historically important, all-black musical film intended for a general audience as an authentic representation of black culture in the 1920s, but it is also unfortunately very condescending and artificial.

    Yeah. Not much to mine of interest here. Blacks on screen! Ooh wow! It's a wee bit condescending.
