Bedevilled is an unusual but dull tale of intrigue in post-war Paris. Anne Baxter and Steve Forrest are completely unable to set off any romantic sparks, and Jo Eisinger's screenplay does them no favors. That's a shame, really, because the setup--newly ordained priest confronts temptation in the City of Lights--holds potential interest. Are there any reasons to watch this Cinemascope trifle? Well, not really, unless you enjoy first class cinematography. Shot on location by the great British DoP, Freddie Young (Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago), the film looks positively stunning. Young was one of the early masters of the widescreen process, and he takes full advantage of the Panavision lens here. Even more remarkably, he managed to get good results from Eastmancolor stock. Turn down the sound and enjoy.
