With them are the an English couple, the Dannreuthers. The 6 are headed for Africa, presumably to sell vacuum cleaners but all is not as it seems. They are joined by others who apparently have similar designs.
Plot: The script, which was written on a day-to-day basis as the film was being shot, concerns the adventures of a motley crew of swindlers and ne’er-do-wells trying to lay claim to land rich in uranium deposits in Kenya as they wait in a small Italian port to travel aboard an ill-fated tramp steamer en route to Mombasa.

Very good off beat comedy, beware of bad prints.
“Beat The Devil” is one of Bogart’s more unusual films. Scripted by none other than Truman Capote and John Huston, it is a very entertaining, offbeat noir satire (quite a description). Upon first viewing a lot of the humor may get lost, but view it a second time, and you can not help but laugh out loud at many of the jokes.

The cast is absolutely top notch. Bogart is perfect as Billy Dannreuther, a man who has a friend that will line him and his associates up with some land in Africa that is rich with uranium. It’s always nice to see Bogie prove that he had a great sense of humor, and didn’t mind poking fun at himself. Jennifer Jones, who, for some reason, always reminded me of Vivien Leigh (in “Streetcar”)in this picture is terrific as Mrs. Chelm. But it is Robert Morley who steals the picture for me. Sometimes menacing, sometimes charming, he is a delight to watch.

Huston and Capote have done a great job of blending the different genres without letting them get all caught up in each other. I do wish that the final scene was written a little better, but the movie is still a lot of fun.

Caution – because the film was allowed to enter the public domain, there are a lot of really lousy prints out on the market, even on DVD. If you want this film for your own collection, do yourself a favor and spend a couple of extra dollars and buy a good print.

7 out of 10

A Reasonable Black Humor Comedy
Billy Dannreuther (Humphrey Bogart) is a smuggler living in Italy with his wife Maria Dannreuther (Gina Lollobrigida). His associates are a quartet of international crooks: Peterson (Robert Morley), Julius O’Hara (Peter Lorre), Maj. Jack Ross (Ivor Barnard) and Ravello (Marco Tulli). The steam vessel where they are traveling to East Africa had some problem and is being repaired. While waiting for the repair, they meet Harry Chelm (Edward Underdown) and his wife Mrs. Gwendolen Chelm (Jennifer Jones), a couple owner of a coffee plantation and moving to Africa. Gwendole is attracted by Billy, and Maria by Harry. When the vessel is fixed, they embark together and while traveling, many incidents happen and the real intentions of each one is presented. Indeed they are all interested in the uranium. This film is a reasonable black humor comedy and I liked it, but it is not my favorite Humphrey Bogart or John Huston film. I do not see anything special to be a cult-movie as it is for many persons. I bought a terrible Canadian VHS from `Platinum Disc Corporation’: it is recorded in EP and has 93 min. running time, with an dreadful quality of image and sound. My vote is seven.
