I Always Loved This Movie

I don't care what anyone says. I have a thing for this movie. It's a great and simple script. Right down to the choice of that great old song that they sing a pivotal points and at the end (Fugue for Tinhorns from 'Guys and Dolls') George Burns' reprisal of this role was and is pure gold. The little things he says, those simple eternal truths hit home every time. They offer us a few words to live by and things to think about...in essence telling us that God's vast plan for the universe is really quite a simple one.

Ted Wass, I am convinced, is the only actor that could have pulled it off with so much charm and sensitivity. He's never been a glittering star, but he will always shine brilliantly for me in this role as the object of the devil's temptation and God's redemption.

Call this a too-religious-sounding review and I will say God is everywhere, even in this typeface.

I recommend this movie to sensitive people only. All others, I am sorry you will never get it.

This might be in my Top 20

I remember seeing "Oh, God! You Devil" in the theater (Sunrise Multiplex, Valley Stream, NY). I was a fan then and, all these years later, I'm more of a fan now. This movie has always touched me in a way few movies have. The script is terrific. The cast is great. George Burns hits the ball out of the park. "Oh, God! You Devil" is one of my all-time favorites. Honorable mention: Eugene Roche.

George Burns as the devil

Bobby Shelton (Ted Wass) is a down-on-his-luck songwriter watched over by God (George Burns) after his father prayed for him as a sick child. He reluctantly does a Beverly Hills wedding. He asks to sell his soul to make it in the business and Satan (George Burns) obliges by signing him. Instead of the standard 7 years deal, he gets a trial period. He becomes superstar Billy Wayne in an instant. His wife Wendy Shelton (Roxanne Hart) is with another man in his place as Bobby but is pregnant with his baby when he was still Bobby. He tries to break his deal with the devil and goes in search for God. He's told to go to the desert and he goes to Las Vegas.

George Burns is good as a cigar smoking Satan. The movie could probably use more Burns. Ted Wass is not that great. This is a little darker and doesn't have quite the same humor as the original. I do need Bobby to do more to break the contract than simply finding God. It would be great if he does good deeds to appeal to God. There are opportunities for drama and humor that aren't taken. I do love the irony of Bobby going to Vegas to find God. It's definitely not as good as the original but it's good to see Burns again anyways.
