The Devil and Daniel Webster

The Devil and Daniel Webster is a 1941 horror film based on Stephen Vincent Benet's short story by the same name. The story can be read online here. This adaptation is directed by William Dieterle, who starred in Waxworks and Murnau's Faust. I particularly noted Simone Simon, who starred in Cat People, and Gene Lockhart, who is in Algiers and is Mr. Cratchit in the Reginald Owen Christmas Carol. We have the Criterion edition.

You can watch it online at this link. Here's a trailer:
