The Sorrows of Satan is a 1917 British silent fantasy film directed by Alexander Butler and starring Gladys Cooper, Owen Nares and Cecil Humphreys. It was made at Isleworth Studios.[1] It was based on the 1895 novel of the same name by Marie Corelli (1855–1924). The plot involves a poverty-stricken author who is so depressed about his life that he agrees to sell his soul to the Devil.[2]

The Devil was depicted as a sympathetic character in the novel on which this film is based, having begged for forgiveness from God who cruelly refuses him, thus making the blockbuster novel a topic of controversy when it was published.

This film version does not follow the novel that closely, with Satan appearing as a handsome, wealthy prince. Christopher Workman opines "Despite being terribly unoriginal, the film....was by all accounts commercially successful". It was remade in 1926 by Paramount, directed by D. W. Griffith.[3]
