Moore Marriott, Marie Ault, and Charles Ashton star in this fantasy about a magic monkey's paw that reunites them with there late son. The paw gives the holder three wishes, but the subject of the last wish will always involve death. The popular storyline would later appear in film version in 1933 and 1945, but it is probably best remembered by the macabre version from the 1960's television show presented by Alfred Hitchcock. This first version was imported from Britain by the Selznick company.
