We may never see the Alec Baldwin-directed remake of this creepy folk tale, wherein Jennifer Love Hewitt plays the devil and Anthony Hopkins her orator opponent. But now for the first time, there’s a complete print of the original that’s mainly pristine (except for a lot of annoying flicker). Featuring James Craig as the farmer who sells his soul to Satan – Walter Huston, in a deliciously pugilistic turn. A- EXTRAS Baldwin reads the Stephen Vincent Benet story on an audio track, and a text essay with audio cues parses Bernard Herrmann’s Oscar-winning, woodwind-infused score.
