The Devil and Max Devlin (1981) Movie Description:

The 1981 comedy from Disney, The Devil and Max Devlin, takes on the familiar story (Angel (The Devil and Daniel Webster, Damn Yankees, etc.) of Satan attempting to make a deal with a mortal in exchange for (in this instance) additional souls. This production is directed by Steven Hilliard Stone who also co-produced along with Jerome Courtland.

Elliott Gould plays Devlin, a less-than-magnaminous LA landlord whose early-on death sets up the storyline. Descending into Hell, Max is met by the aptly-named Barney Satan, apparently a "meet-and-greeter" who offers Devlin a deal: A return to Earth in exchange for three signed, sealed and delivered souls within three months. Max agrees, and sets about fulfilling his end of the bargain.

The Devil and Max Devlin was written by Mary Rodgers, who earlier wrote the successful Freaky Friday, a 1976 Disney production.

Television legend Bill Cosby is perfect as Barney, playing the devilish role with aloofness and detachment. Susan Anspach, Julie Budd and Adam Rich also appear.

Amy (1981) Movie Description:

An early take on "women's liberation" is the focus of the 1981 Disney production, Amy, a live-action film set in the early 20th-century. Written by Noreen Stone and directed by Vincent McEveety, veteran Disney collaborator.

Jenny Agutter stars as a housewife who displays incredible courage and strength by going against her husband's wishes by taking on the task of teaching at a school for the blind and deaf. Her husband (Chris Robinson), a wealthy landowner, forbids her from working outside the home, which was the norm in the early 1900s. Still, Amy leaves her lavish existence and husband for a much less comfortable lifestyle at the rural school.

The "special" students taking on the "normal" students in a football game is the film's climactic scene.

Amy is a heart-warming, inspirational story that teaches the values of perseverance and setting goals. Other notables in the cast include Barry Newman, Kathleen Nolan and Nanette Fabray.

A collaborative effort between Paramount Pictures and Walt Disney Productions, 1981's Dragonslayer is a fantasy film set in an imaginary land populated by wizards, dragons, and all that goes with it. Spielberg and Lucas protege Matthew Robbins directed.

A dragon named Vermithrax Pejorative is laying waste to the mythical kingdom of Urland, and the powers-that-be set about to find someone to vanquish the 400-year old behemoth.

Superb special effects highlight Dragonslayer, courtesy of Industrial Light and Magic's wizardry.
