Que tanto el director como el guionista y algunos de sus principales actores pusieran el alcohol como principal protagonista de esta película durante sus reuniones fuera del rodaje, es más que apreciable con echarle un simple vistazo. Desconozco si será por el efecto del whisky en sus ya bastante desmadradas personalidades, pero la verdad es que la narración se resiente en cuanto a saltos en s... read more

Description: A clever cult favorite written by Truman Capote, directed by John Huston and starring Humphrey Bogart - how can you lose? Bogart heads a superior cast in this tale of a gang of swindlers who look to purchase African lands rich in uranium. This is not the tough film noir you might expect from the people that brought you "The Maltese Falcon." The script is wicked and wry and a fine cast gives a host of eccentric performances.

My Movie Diary 2017 (217 movies items)

"25 May. Directed by John Huston with screenplay by Truman Capote, Beat the Devil stars Humphrey Bogart, Gina  Lollobrigida, Jennifer Jones, Peter Lorre, Robert Morley as a gang of misfits somewhere in Africa plotting to get rich by looking for uranium. The movie offers talent but the story seems to go nowhere, or that it takes too long for the trip. Definitely not Bogart's best since he has to share the screen with many others more interestingly written characters than his. "
