All That Money Can Buy – The Criterion Collection (Blu-ray Review)

Originally known as The Devil and Daniel Webster, based on the original 1936 short story by Stephen Vincent Benét, All That Money Can Buy was previously released by the Criterion Collection in 2003 on DVD. This Blu-ray release, featuring a brand-new 4K restoration, looks to bring new life to the Oscar-winning 1941 supernatural feature. Its presentation of a Faustian-like bargain through the lens of 19th-century America has an interesting place in history, and I was pretty fascinated with how this whole thing played out. On top of that, this new home release has plenty of worthwhile extras to accompany the feature. It’s quite the deal (fortunately not with the Devil).
