Love and the Devil is a 1929 American silent drama film directed by Alexander Korda and starring Milton Sills, María Corda and Ben Bard.[1][2]


It was the last time Korda worked with his wife María Corda who he had directed frequently over the previous decade but whose career went into sharp decline once sound films came in. Like Korda's previous film Night Watch the film had sound effects and music but no dialogue and was largely therefore a silent film.[3] His next film The Squall would be his first Talkie as the technology became rapidly established in the wake of The Jazz Singer.
