Watch John Huston’s Beat the Devil

In hon­or of what would have been John Hus­ton’s 105th birth­day, we’re fea­tur­ing Beat the Dev­il, the 1953 clas­sic direct­ed by Hus­ton and co-writ­ten by Tru­man Capote. Star­ring Humphrey Bog­a­rt, Jen­nifer Jones, Gina Lol­lo­b­rigi­da and Peter Lorre (quite a cast!), the film is a dra­mat­ic com­e­dy that spoofs the noir genre and par­tic­u­lar­ly Hus­ton’s own leg­endary film, The Mal­tese Fal­con. You can find Beat the Dev­il per­ma­nent­ly list­ed in our col­lec­tion of Free Movies Online, as well as in our Free Film Noir col­lec­tion.
