The Devil and Daniel Webster (Masters of Cinema Series) in February
Eureka Entertainment have announced the UK DVD release of William Dieterle’s The Devil and Daniel Webster as part of their Masters of Cinema Series on 23rd February 2009 priced at £19.99. A morality tale for the ages, William Dieterle’s The Devil and Daniel Webster (aka All That Money Can Buy) is based on a short story by celebrated author Stephen Vincent Benet and offers a study in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, in which patriotism is cast in dramatic conflict with servitude to greed and materialism.

- The director’s cut (the film was severely shorn after its original release)
- Optimal digital transfer with restored image and sound
- Subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
- A lavish 60-page booklet with archival publicity stills; an essay by professor Tony Williams; an article by director William Dieterle; and a celebration of the film by author Stephen Vincent Benet, whose “The Devil and Daniel Webster” short story is reprinted in its entirety
