Porgy and Bess is a American musical film directed by Otto Preminger. It is based on the opera Porgy and Bess by George Gershwin , DuBose Heyward , and Ira Gershwin , which is in turn based on Heyward's novel Porgy , as well as Heyward's subsequent non-musical stage adaptation, co-written with his wife Dorothy. The screenplay for the film, which turned the operatic recitatives into spoken dialogue, was very closely based on the opera and was written by N. Richard Nash. The project was the last for Samuel Goldwyn. Due to its controversial subject matter, the film was shown only briefly following its initial reserved seat engagements in major cities, where it drew mixed reviews from critics.
