The Devil's Partner ★½ 1958

Yet another uninspired devil yarn in which an old-timer trades in his senior citizenship by dying and coming back in the form of his younger self. Young again, he takes a new wife and indulges in multiple ritual sacrifices. Noteworthy only by virtue of the cast's later TV notoriety—Buchanan and Foulger would later appear on “Petticoat Junction,” Nelson played Dr. Rossi on “Peyton Place,” and Crane beached a role on “Hawaiian Eye.” 75m/B VHS, DVD . Ed Nelson, Jean Allison, Edgar Buchanan, Richard Crane, Spencer Carlisle, Byron Foulger, Claire Carleton; D: Charles R. Rondeau.
