The Devil Finds Work is a book length essay by writer James Baldwin. Published in 1976, it is both a memoir of his experiences watching movies and a critique of the racial politics of American cinema. It opens with a discussion of a Joan Crawford film, which is the first movie Baldwin can remember seeing, and ends with a discussion of The Exorcist, which came out in 1973. Among the other movies discussed are Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, In the Heat of the Night and The Defiant Ones.
