Great Twist
24 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know if Dahl actually wrote this story but it was one of the best.Susan Strasberg plays a fortune teller.In her case she's the real deal and her Tarot cards never fail. She gets a visit form Max Gail one day and does a reading. She does it over and over again and it continues to be the same message- Max Gail is going to come into a great deal of money and shortly after will die. Strasberg finds Gail repulsive but marries him to inherit his wealth. Things don't go as planned.It turns out that SHE is the one who inherits the money. Max Gail kills her to get HER money. After he does he buries her outside in a rainstorm and comes into the house soaking wet.He turns on the TV and accidentally gets electrocuted from the cord The cards were right.HE did come into a great deal of money and shortly after HE does die.It just didn't happen the way his wife expected. Good performances all around. I have seen this same story on other shows but this was the best version
