Synopsis / Plot
The last of five joint efforts between director John Huston and Humphrey Bogart, Beat The Devil has become a cinema classic. Truman Capote´s witty script sends Bogart into a complex scheme to gain control of a stretch of East African land rich in uranium. On the way there, their boat breaks down, leaving Bogart, his wife (Gina Lollobrigida) and a quartet of international criminals stranded in Italy. They meet a seemingly proper British couple (Jennifer Jones and Edward Underdown) and the comic adventure begins.
