Where does most of the 1941 film "The Devil and Daniel Webster" take place?

  • Vermont
  • Massachusetts
  • New Hampshire correct

    In real life, noted statesman and Secretary of State Daniel Webster was actually from New Hampshire, so it only makes sense that the film (and the 1936 short story it was based on) set the action there. Edward Arnold played Webster in the movie and Walter Huston starred as the devil, in the form of smooth-talking Mr. Scratch. Source: TCM
