Synopsis

Acclaimed fantasy drama about a luckless 19th-century New England farmer (James Craig) who tires of his bad fortune and sells his soul to the Devil (Walter Huston, in a scene-stealing performance). However, it's not long before the suddenly prosperous gent realises he's made a terrible mistake - and hires a top-class lawyer to plead his case and win his property back. Edward Arnold, Jane Darwell and Gene Lockhart also star.
