BEAT THE DEVIL (1953 / REGION A ONLY) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Humphrey Bogart, Peter Lorre, Robert Morley, Gina Lollobrigida, Jennifer Jones, Edward Underdown
Directed By:  John Huston
Composed By:  Franco Mannino

“The plot is an afterthought…The movie has above all effortless charm…we can relax and share the amusement of the actors, who are essentially being asked to share their playfulness.”
– Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“The film careens from scene to scene with barely contained, wholly invigorating chaos. The disorder is made even more delectable by a game cast, each performer, without exception and regardless of celebrity status, embracing and in sync with the movie's shambolic energy.”
– Melissa Anderson, The Village Voice

A wildly eccentric collaboration between director John Huston, writer Truman Capote, and an astonishing cast of stars and character actors, Beat the Devil (1953) offers a sly send-up of caper films. In this one, everything goes amusingly wrong for its gallery of liars, thieves, and fantasists, including Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones, Gina Lollobrigida, Robert Morley, Peter Lorre, and Edward Underdown. Even more amusingly, they hardly care, so enraptured are they with each other’s company and with the gorgeous Italian scenery, magnificently shot by the great Oswald Morris.

Absolutely reference quality picture - fine grained, sharp as a tack and free of flaws and artifacts. A genuine pleasure and revelation after the indifferent public domain versions available til now - highly recommended both as a film and a beautiful presentation.
