The White Devil (Italian: Il diavolo bianco) is a 1947 Italian historical adventure film directed by Nunzio Malasomma and starring Rossano Brazzi, Annette Bach and Roldano Lupi. It is based on Leo Tolstoy's 1912 novella Hadji Murat.[1]

It was shot at the Scalera Studios in Rome. The film's sets were designed by the art director Arrigo Equini. It earned around 272 million lira at the Italian box office.[2]


In the Caucasus a rebel fighter battles against the rule of an oppressive Russian Governor, although he is in real life a prince who pretends to be a supporter of the Governor.
