Storyline

A continuation of the dramatic anthology series hosted by the Master of Suspense and Mystery. When the series Alfred Hitchcock Presents was revived in 1962, the name was changed, but the format stayed fairly true to the original. In each episode, viewers would be strung along with the story, never knowing which way the final twist would turn. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

Sir Alfred Hitchcock was one of the first people permitted to film the concentration camps in Europe in 1945, right after the Auschwitz liberation. The footage showed horrifying images of walking skeletons, people barely alive walking amongst the thousands of starved and/or bloody corpses, and large mass graves with hardly recognizable bodies being quickly tossed in. You can view piles of cut hair, personal belongings, clothing, all stripped from the inmates. Hitchcock got the genuine glance of the deadly nightmare. Most people weren't ready to see such horrific sights, and the film was not publicly shown. But only in the past couple of years has the footage been found, and finally put on display on the seventieth anniversary of Auschwitz's liberation. The footage has been made into a documentary Memories of the Camps (2014). See more »

Alternate Versions

Alfred Hitchcock was famous for his highly amusing opening and closing narratives. However, for each episode more than one opening and closing were filmed, as Hitchcock's famous jibes at the sponsors were unappreciated in the European markets. So for each episode, Hitchcock filmed two openings and two closings: one would be for American viewings (jokes about sponsors) and the second would be for European showings (jokes about Americans and not about sponsors). For most of the third season, Hitchcock even did the opening and closings in French and German, as he spoke both languages fluently. See more »

92 episodes, well-directed
20 February 2008 | by MarieGabrielleSee all my reviews

and many now famous (and infamous) actors from the past and present. This show is suspenseful and similar to the shorter version, albeit the stories are better, more involved.

One story which is quirky and interesting is the episode where a drunken man loses everything. Tony Randall and Jayne Mansfield, 1962. Tony Randall delivers a perfect performance as frustrated ad executive (he and Mansfield reprising this role and story from the hysterical comedy "Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?"). Since this is Hitchcock, however, there is a twist and pathos to the storyline.

Worth owning on DVD and also watching in the U.S. on Chiller channel. 9/10.
