A hapless loser sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for seven wishes, but has trouble winning over the girl of his dreams.
(at around 14 mins) The book George tears the last page from (supposedly so the infuriated reader will never know whodunnit) is the 1966 Fontana Books printing of Agatha Christie's 1963 novel "The Clocks".
I love you, Margaret.
Margaret Spencer: And I love you, Sister Luna.
(at around 30 mins) When The Devil talks about The Garden of Eden being a swamp like Croydon, and then points saying it's over there, he is actually pointing roughly east towards Islington, whilst Croydon is south from their position on the tower. He could have been referring to Hackney Marshes which are in the direction he was pointing, but they were only marshes in name at the time the film was made.
The film ends with God laughing at the devil; God's laughter continues intermittently throughout the closing credits.
