This wonderfully eerie film is based on three mysteries by Somerset Maugham, Roderick Wilkinson, and Brett Halliday. In the first tale, a doomed museum guard is magically transported into his favorite painting. In the second, two friends fall in love with the same woman, who is suddenly killed. The dramatic finale stars Orson Welles as a statesman driven mad by guilt after he destroys his political rival.

The first of them is the very original Ghostly doings in an art gallery . Through a so living picture the guardian of the gallery will go to another level of reality when he decides to cross a forbidden line. The otherness will establish its own codes in this wasteland .
The second tale turns around two suspects when a gril is murdered . Suspense and high caliber tension along the work.
And finally we have to the giant Orson Welles playing a weird role : apowerful lord will be plagued for the memory of a House member he ahs humiliated in public.
This collection of tales have become in a glorious reference for the future cinema connoiseurs . And may be well the inspirational motive for the creators of Twilight Zone ten yeras after .
The powerful and charismatic presence of Welles makes of it a must see , but the other two are watchable works .
What else do you need for let you sweeping for those botabvle British directors in a terror fable?
