Happy 164th Birthday, Guy de Maupassant! (08/05/1850 - 07/06/1893) List of CBSRMT episodes based on his stories: #0044-THE HORLA #0062-THE DIARY OF A MADMAN #0080-THE HAND #0276-THE DIAMOND NECKLACE #0548-THE GRAVEYARD #0573-THE ARTIST #0782-REVENGE IS SWEET List of CBSRMT episodes involving Guy de Maupassant: #0715-THE GUY DE MAUPASSANT MURDERS #1115-LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE The Diamond Necklace... one of the best CBSMTs. The sound effect on "The Horla" will clean your speakers. Consistently strong adaptations, wish they had done more.

Many stories have been mistakenly attributed to De Maupassant over the years. A famous edition of his complete stories was published in 1903 which contained 65 stories which he did not write ! This was corrected in the 1955 Doubleday edition edited by Artine Artinian which is still considered the authoritative edition and can still be found on Amazon or abebooks at not too steep a price . " The Artist " is not included in that volume so it was probably not written by De Maupassant . You still read " The Artist " on line , however , as it is still attributed to him on some on-line sites .
