Synopsis in German
Nach einem Leben als Sünder wird Little Joe zum Gegenstand einer Wette zwischen dem Sohn des Teufels und einem Engel. Seine fromme Frau Petunia betet für ihn. In diesem Musical spielten ausschliesslich farbige Darsteller mit; dabei traten auch Louis Armstrong als Schauspieler und Musiker sowie das Orchester von Duke Ellington auf. (Locarno Festival)

Der Glücksspieler Little Joe Jackson wird erschossen, doch seine Frau Petunia betet so verzweifelt um sein Leben, dass Gott ihm sechs Monate Bewährung gibt. In dieser Zeit kommt es zum heftigen Wettstreit zwischen dem himmlischen General und dem teuflischen Lucifer jr. um die Seele des armen Sünders. Der ahnungslose Little Joe fühlt sich wie neu geboren und ist frisch in Petunia verliebt. Die laszive Georgia Brown, ein Los und der Gangster Domino Johnson sorgen jedoch für dramatische Ereignisse.
