An acceptable TV movie

This could have been written by Guy De Maupassant and adapted for the screen by a guy like Albert Lewin, starring for instance Georges Sanders, the most famous dandy cynical character for this kind of atmosphere. The tale of a man who, in the eighteenth century, buys a piece of texture that may give him luck and good fortune, and also permits him to make three wishes... With of course unexpected results, and not only good ones for our lead. It reminds me an old British feature: MONKEY'S PAW, with nearly the same topic. But I guess that kind of story has often been told in the movie industry, TV and non TV.

The kind of story we often find in Saturday night TV movies, at least in France. It also could have been an Alfred Hitchcoch Presents topic or other old TV shows we saw in the fifties such Desilu Playhouse, Alcoa Theatre, Dupont Theatre, or Schlitz Playhouse. Stories with running time of 30 minutes instead of 90 or 100.

But it's worth watching.
