Still image from Beat The Devil

A parody of 1940's detective movies, it tells of the exploits of a group of con artists who hope to pull off a huge swindle in the uranium fields of Africa. But when their steamer explodes en route, they find themselves captives of a band of Arabs. Only quick thinking and fast talking can save their lives. Based on the novel by James Helvick (pseudonym used by Claud Cockburn). Originally released as a theatrical production in 1950.
