A film made for television starring Sammy Davis Jr with Jack Klugman , Christopher Lee Madeleine Rhue , Gino Conforti
Sammy is the biggest bungler on Lucifer's staff. For 1,400 years his record has been one of non-stop failure. He helped the Pilgrim Fathers to land. He was the only person at the Chicago Fire who didn't have a match. Now, up on earth, an underpaid, overworked accountant seems to be ready to sell his soul-and provides one last chance for Sammy to prove that he can be a successful devil.
Director ROBERT SCHEERER.
