Supernatural Movie: Bedazzled (1967)

Bedazzled

Bedazzled, a 1967 film starring Dudley Moore. Yes, that’s Raquel Welch as Lust.

Okay, this movie was made before I was born, but still, it’s worth viewing.  Bedazzled (1967) is written by Peter Cook who also stars as the devil.  He makes a British devil character so funny and so appealing. I’m using the very same conceit in my novel.  Dudley Moore stars as a poor sap, Stanley Moon, who works at Wimpy’s (a greasy spoon in London) and is hopelessly in love with a waitress played by Eleanor Bron. Moon makes a deal with the devil that goes horribly wrong in so many hilarious ways that I don’t even want to tell you about them.  I’ll only say that some of my favorite scenes involve a music video, ice lollies (posicles), and a nun on a trampoline.  You’re going to thank me for this theologically sound, comically funny recommendation.
