Puccini: Turandot, Nessun Dorma

The 1987 film The Witches of Eastwick, based on a novel by John Updike, featured Michelle Pfeiffer, Cher and Susan Sarandon as modern day witches, and Jack Nicholson as the Devil. Calling himself Daryl, Nicholson was the unintended result when the three ladies attempted to concoct the perfect man. Since the Devil can be all things to all people, he was exactly what the women were looking for, and his odd appearance, oversized clothing and active eyebrows only seemed to add to his appeal. Accompanied by operatic selections such as Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma”, mixed with an original score by John Williams, the darkly comic events of John Updike’s novel turned film translated very well to the big screen, and became one of 1987's most popular movies.
