The Devil and Daniel Webster Reviews

  • 3d ago

    A classic film that focuses on how quickly greed and self-interest can shatter the community, destroy one's destiny, and that not all is lost when one moves toward self-satisfaction that redemption is still possible.

    Saw on TCM. A real original work that I thought may have been a cheap take on Webster. Surprisingly it turned out to take a much more moral tale

    Wonderful fantasy with great performances and surreal touches. James Craig is way underrated here. He leads the film in a great performance. Watch the way he delivers the line when hearing he is to become a father.... ‘a son. an heir. money’. Walter Huston is fun but gets way TOO much credit. A lead acting Oscar nom? Are you kidding? He is in less than half of the film!

    Sorry, but I have to dissent. I could not even get as far as the courtroom scene (and as a lawyer, I was looking forward to it). The wife was saintly and unflawed, the mother pious and self-righteous, Jabez wooden and the movie only came alive when Scratch was on the screen.
