One Response to Bedazzled (1967)

  1. Timothy Lane says:

    There are numerous funny aspects to this movie, and it occasionally makes a sharp point as well. One might consider the rock-star sequence, in which Stanley Moon sings a song called “Love Me”, and Spiggott (the devil’s human incarnation, at least in London) sings the title song (in which he rejects a woman’s advances because he has no interest in anyone else — “I am totally self-contained”). There are the numerous small temptation scenes in which Spiggott does routine mischief (such as ripping out the end of Agatha Christie novels) in order to provoke a few extra sins, however small, from people at random. Also of interest is the scene in which Spiggott demonstrates his original point by having Stanley praise him as if he were God — and when Stanley asks if they could trade places for a bit, explains that he had the same thought all those years ago.
