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.
