Beat the Devil

(NR) UK/Italy/USA – 1 hr 29 min
1953 · d. John Huston   Reviews
Starring Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones, Gina Lollobrigida

Based on the novel by James Helvick (pseudonym of British journalist Claud Cockburn) and with screenplay by Truman Capote, who wrote the film on a day-to-day basis as it was being shot, this delightfully bizarre parody of a genre film starring Humphrey Bogart so befuddled preview audiences that it was instantly cut and re-edited, making it even more baffling! Seen for decades only in that mangled version, this new restoration went back to the original 35mm camera negative and other sources to re-create the previously unseen longer version
