    Beat the Devil (United Artists, 1953). Italian Photobustas (5). (13.5" X 19.25") This offbeat satire, scripted by Truman Capote and John Huston, and directed by Huston, stars Humphrey Bogart in a tale of a gang of swindlers who seek to covertly purchase African lands rich in uranium. Bogie was injured in a car crash during the filming, and a young Peter Sellers ultimately dubbed some of his dialogue. These Italian photobustas feature excellent shots of Bogie, Peter Lorre, Jennifer Jones, and especially buxom bombshell Gina Lollobrigida. The cards are in varying conditions, with pinholes, edge wear, small edge tears, tanning, and corner chips on some but not all. There is also a tax stamp on one card. Get your Bogie fix with this great group of 'bustas! Fine/Very Fine.
