seldom shown collection of three vignettes
4 June 2007 | by (southwest US) – See all my reviews

A collection of three stories taking place in Egypt, it opens with the narrator taking four items out of a box. (From the introduction, I expected the four items to somehow tie the three stories together, but I was incorrect.) Each short story is like an episode of the Twilight Zone-- this film was made in 1953, but due to the poor sound and photography quality and the location, it has the look of a much older film. The credits list only 11 actors, including Joseph Cotten as narrator; for three of those actors, this was the only known acting gig shown on IMDb. It would have been interesting to know who the other characters are in all three stories. The only additional acting credit at the end of the film itself is the name of the order of monks appearing in the third story.
