    DRO definitely has it's problems, but I love the first twenty minutes and there's enough good moments through the rest (especially Gray's performance) to carry me. TTDAD I've never warmed to. I don't like it's look (admittedly a different era of filmmaking and different styles were in vogue) and I remember the ending being fairly botched. But I'll give it another look one of these days.

    My main problem with DRO is the fact the devil appears part way through and is defeated by a crucifix being chucked at him.

    I love The Devil's Ride Out and the cheesy devil. I watched TTDAD a couple of years ago and can't remember a single thing about it...

    I think that particular shot and make-up's quite creepy to be honest while Lee looks extremely cool and debonaire in this film, I also think he's very good in it.

    All that glitters.

    It might be a weird comparison, but I think of this film like Dario Argento's recent "Mother of Tears". It's not a perfect film by a long shot--it has some powerful moments, but a really bad ending. It suffers in comparison to earlier Hammer classics (but I don't personally consider "The Devil Rides Out" a Hammer classic), but it's also very underrated.

    I agree that the fact that it was a troubled production shouldn't be held against it--some great films have been 'troubled productions" like "Jaws" or "Apocalypse Now". Nor should the fact that it was one of the last of the original Hammer films.

    I love Widmark and Christopher Lee, even if it wasn't the finest hour of either. "Devi" also introduced the world to Nastassia Kinski (although she may have been in "Aguirre, Wrath of God"--I've never been able to tell).
