The Librarian

Happy SQUEEEE!!!!!

The original Bedazzled is out on Region 1 DVD!!! ***much happy dancing, as the household VHS copy is showing its fuzzy age when played*** Peter Cook as George Spiggott, aka The Devil, working his petty mischiefs and dragging a hapless Stanley Moon (Dudley Moore) through seven wishes in exchange for his soul!!!! Granted, the bit with the first wish drags, but the scene where Spiggott gives Moon a live demonstration of why he got booted out of Heaven more than makes up for it And then there's the animated fly-on-the-wall scene ... and the trampolining nuns ... and Raquel Welch as "Lust" ...

Another one for the wish list and VHS replacement program ...
