I caught some of an old film, many years ago.

It was in early technicolour and involved a man who meets someone who has a magic watch which grants wishes.

The man wants to be in the army - of WWII - but the wish granter sends him to George Washington's Army.

Then somehow he ends up being sent to a Pilgrim village by mistake. He seems to own most of this village but it costs him huge amounts of money which he doesn't have.

In the end I think he ends up being a troop entertainer in the WWII army.

Anyway have any ideas
