Bedazzled is smartly-styled and typical of certain types of high British comedy. It’s a fantasy of a London short-order cook madly in love with a waitress, who is offered seven wishes by the Devil in return for his soul.

Stanley Donen production is pretty much the work of two of its three stars, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore. Pair scripted from Cook’s original story, and Moore also composed music score. Eleanor Bron is third star, plus Raquel Welch, whose brief appearance is equalled only by her scant attire.

Mephistophelean overtones are inserted in this modern-day Faust legend tacked onto Moore, who would give his soul to possess Margaret, the waitress (Bron). Cook (Mephistopheles), parading under the mundane name of George Spiggot, appears mysteriously in Moore’s flat as he flubs a suicide attempt and grants all of the cook’s wishes.
