Description
 
This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

Also known as "Contact Man." Please note: This is a VHS transfer.

This modern-day "Faust" variation benefits from a superb cast. Thomas Mitchell plays Joseph Foster, an honest judge who wants to become governor. Blocked by corrupt political forces, Foster would practically have to make a deal with the Devil to reach his goal. Enter Nick Beal (Ray Milland), a diabolically handsome gent with a slick line of patter and a smooth, infallible method of getting things done. Failing to recognize his benefactor's true identity (after all, Nick has no horns or cloven hooves) Foster agrees to the deal when Nick assures him that the end result is for the good of the people. To bind the bargain, Nick sends out one of his most trusted associates, Donna Allen (Audrey Totter), to keep Foster in line. When Foster finally realizes that he's sold his soul, there seems to be no way out..but that's when the forces of Good, represented by Foster's wife Martha (Geraldine Wall) and his clergyman friend Thomas Gaylord (George Macready), switch into high gear.

ALIAS NICK BEAL July 31, 2017
Reviewer: Joe Dante from Palmdale, CA United States  
No Paramount logo, but a pretty good transfer from I guess VHS. Hard to believe this one has never come out officially as it's one of John Farrow/Ray Milland's best pics, almost as good as THE BIG CLOCK.

Reviewer: Gary Pientka from Las Cruces, NM United States  
Now rarely seen, Ray Milland is superb (as always), this time as one of the devil's minions. Audrey Totter and Thomas Mitchell lend excellent support. Very nice, clear, sharp print.

Alias Nick Beal bats a thousand! April 3, 2017
Reviewer: James Dean from Fayetteville, NC United States  
This is a terrific little movie about Thomas Mitchell (at his best minus the Gone With The Wind hammy stuff) being led astray by Ray Milland's devil (with Milland also at his best with a performance that rivals his turn in Dial M for Murder).  I remembered loving this movie and it holds up very well!
