I'm looking for the same answer...but unfortunately have not had any luck finding the title. I saw the same movie years ago on PBS. The man made a deal with the devil to wear the coat for seven years. He couldn't shave, bath, cut his hair or trim his nails. In return the pockets of the coat would always be filled with gold and he could spend it on what ever he liked. After the seven years when he was finally able to remove the had grown to his skin and had to be peeled off *ouch* I don't really remember much else :/ Ah-ha!! After searching a bit more I was able to find the name of the movie: Bearskin (From The Brothers Grimm) (1984) "A valiant soldier, wandering without cause or family after the Civil War, accepts the Devil's challenge to go for seven years without washing himself; cutting his hair, beard, or nails; or reciting the Lord's Prayer in exchange for limitless wealth. Draped in the Devil's cloak and the skin of a bear, the soldier travels the world, reveling in his riches until his appearance and odor become repugnant to all and especially to himself. At that point, the soldier learns to care about others and becomes the benefactor to a down-on-his-luck man who, in return for the soldier's generosity, offers one of his daughters in marriage." Booklist, January 1985. It's available on :)

How tall is Dante from Devil May Cry?

I've been researching about Devil May Cry for a very long while and a lot of these answers to peoples' questions are hard to find. But here's what I found (and some of them can be confusing due to CapCom's stupidity) - DmC (Dante is 16-21 years old but the thing is, this game isn't gonna be part of the series now.) - Devil May Cry 3 Manga (Dante is 18) - Devil May Cry 3 and Marvel vs CAPCOM 3 (Dante is 19) - Devil May Cry 1 Novel (Dante is 28) - Devil May Cry 1 and Viewtiful Joe (Dante is 28-29 years old) - Devil May Cry Anime (Dante is 29-30 years old) - Devil May Cry 2 Novel and Devil May Cry 2 -> (Dante is 30 years old, CAPCOM plans to change it though to between 35 and 40 years old cause there have been rumours that there's gonna be a REAL Devil May Cry 5 taking place after this game, and Nero will star in it again ;)) - Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne (Dante is 30-31 years old) - Devil May Cry 4 (Dante is 31-34 years old but like I said, CapCom plans to change that)
