Storyline

Two clubmen discuss the occult, introducing three weird tales: 1) Plain, bitter Henrietta secretly loves law student Michael. Then on Mardi Gras night, a mysterious stranger gives her a mask of beauty that she must return at midnight. 2) At a party, palmist Podgers makes uncannily accurate predictions, later telling skeptic Marshal Tyler that he will murder someone. The notion obsesses Tyler, with ironic consequences. 3) High wire artist Gaspar dreams of falling, then loses his nerve. He recognizes Joan from his dreams, and falls for her. Will any of his dreams, involving Joan and disaster, come true? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Quotes

Doakes: [Last lines to Davis as he is leaving the club study] Let me give you some advice, Chum. Forget all these old bugaboos, dreama, and fortune tellers and drinking out of your left hand. It's the bunk. It's superstition. That's what it is, and superstition is for gypsies.
Doakes: [He laughs] Superstition...
[He mutters indistictly as he works his way around the ladder that is blocking the doorway]

A 40's guilty pleasure.
27 November 1998 | by (East Chicago) – See all my reviews

Great fun for fans of those slightly off-kilter, dark 40's films which center around a strange and mysterious theme. In this case it's a man's obsession with dreams that are destined to come true. Features a trio of stories, and the best comes last. (plus an all-star cast!) A sister film to Three Strangers (1946).
