Carmen Jones (1954)

Dorothy Dandridge earned a landmark Oscar nomination for the title role in this adaptation of Bizet’s opera Carmen, which transports the story of a liberated woman—and sly seductress—to the southern United States. After she is arrested for fighting a coworker in an Army parachute factory, she charms the young corporal (Harry Belafonte) who is assigned to deliver her to the authorities and makes her escape. This screening will be preceded by the presentation of the 2023 Robert Osborne Award to film historian Donald Bogle.
