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.
