The Little Devil
26 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this classic in Greece in English un-dubbed seemingly. I have been trying to find a copy for years. If anyone has news I would appreciate help.

It is indeed likely the funniest film I've ever seen and far superior to much of RB's other work. Perhaps the language problems I've read of herein explain the failure of Netflix to carry it.

As for Matthau, I've never liked him personally, but in this he is uproariously droll.

Any news in tracking this film we be greatly thanked.

George Slater
