Movie Info

Less than a week after the U.S. release of Rene Clair's Beauty and the Devil came another cinemazation of the Faust legend, this one produced in Italy. Faust and the Devil was directed by Carmine Gallone, whose career extended back to the dawn of the Italian film industry. Gallone proved that age hadn't withered his ability to entertain, as he adroitly combines Goethe's version of Faust with Gounod's operatic adaptation. Gino Mattera stars as Faust, an ageing pedant who sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for youth, knowledge, and love. Italo Tajo and Nelly Corradi co-star as Mephistopheles and Marguerite, respectively. While Mattera and Tajo do their own singing in the musical passages, Corradi merely lip-syncs while the voice of Onelia Finechi is heard on the soundtrack.
