=====================
BEDAZZLED 1967 Stanley Donen starring Peter Cook and Dudley Moore--a comic
version of the Faust story.
 
Are you also considering things like THE DEVIL AND DANIEL WEBSTER (from
story by Stephen Vincent Benet) by William Dieterle (1941) which have some
intermediate source between them and the archetypal Faust story?
