One of the greatest mid-century screen fantasies, up there with Powell & Pressberger's The Red Shoes and Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast, with brilliant cinematography and an Oscar winning score.

And then, as the previous commenter aptly noted, there's Walter Huston, who steals the show (among other things). Don't miss this.

Jabez Stone agrees to sell his soul to the devil (played by the incomparable Walter Huston) in exchange for seven years of good luck. The film shows how great wealth and luck can despoil a man from being amiable and charitable to his family and friends to a despicable character. Huston is great as the laughing devil. Be careful of the last frame as Huston chooses his next victim.
