The Mascot (1934) Wladyslaw Starewicz

Wladyslaw Starewicz (1882 – 1965)
created this visually stunning, near silent film in the 1930s
and he incorporated many then cutting edge special effects
into the imaginative production.

Known as Fétiche in France and Duffy in the UK and the US,
the toy stuffed dog title character proved successful
enough for several sequels.

First saw any of this when Night Flight ran the portion where Duffy
meets up with the devil and his pals.
