This devil is fun, seductive, even, and he knows it-he's always immensely pleased with himself, and he doesn't need to pressure anyone to do business with him...
| Original Score: 8/10
Juxtapose the name of a true-life nineteenth-century orator, attorney and senator with the Biblical personification of evil, and you capture something of the strange mix here of social realism and moralising mythology
It's the heavy Teutonic Faust, but made American lite in this supernatural tale.
| Original Score: B
Excellent, high-class genre film.
William Dieterle's entertaining version of the noted Stephen Vincent Benet's story, about the Devil and Daniel Webster features a strong, Oscar nominated performance by Walter Huston.
| Original Score: B+
A wonderful masterpiece. Walter Huston has a devilishly good time!
| Original Score: 5/5
Huston and Arnold are superb in this stirring blend of American and Faust.
Craig's performance is downright terrible, but old pros Arnold and Huston (who scored a Best Actor nomination) pick up the pace.
| Original Score: 3/4
Spooky, light-hearted, and never less than a joy to watch
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Wonderfully made fantasy that strangely leaves me cold.
