Movie Summary
Humphrey Bogart stars as one of five disreputable adventurers who are trying to get uranium out of East Africa. Bogarts associates include pompous fraud Robert Morley, and Peter Lorre as the German-accented OHara, whose wartime record is forever a source of speculation and suspicion. Becoming involved in Bogarts machinations are a prim British married couple (Edward Underdown and blonde-wigged Jennifer Jones). As a climax to their many misadventures and double-crosses, the uranium seekers end up facing extermination by an Arab firing squad. The satirical nature of Beat the Devil eluded many moviegoers in 1953, and the film was a failure. The fact that the picture attained cult status in lesser years failed to impress its star Humphrey Bogart, who could only remember that he lost a considerable chunk of his own money when he became involved in the project. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
