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...

It's the heavy Teutonic Faust, but made American lite in this supernatural tale.

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.

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.
