how to make nothing much of a good idea
Jack Pickford was an odious young man and not a particularly wonderful actor but the idea of the beggar's curse on which it is based - that he should have everything he wants - is a rather good one. This is the work of hugely prolific short story writer and novelist Ben Ames (later the man behind two noir classics, Leave Her to Heaven 1945 and The Strange Woman 1946) but it is only a short story and the film does peter out dreadfully towards the end, particularly as Green has made everything far too explicit and there is no real tension of any kind.

The moral of the tale incidentally (and one does encounter the phenomenon in other films of the period) is that one should be very wary of women who wear anything resembling the remains of a pheasant on top of their head. It sems one should always prefer the type of woman who has a perfectly simple little fox-carcass strung around her neck, perhaps because one can chat to it while embracing her. Ah, those were the days!
