The Devil and Daniel Webster

Bernard Herrmann won his only Oscar (beating himself and his Citizen Kane score, also nominated) for his music to this visually stunning fantasy that transposes the Faust legend to New England. Based on Stephen Vincent Benet's story, it tells of a New Hampshire farmer who sells his soul to the devil, Mr. Scratch (Walter Huston). But when Scratch comes to claim it seven yeas later, the farmer enlists the great American orator Daniel Webster to defend him before a phantom judge and a ghostly jury in a court of law.
