(*Quote by host, Alfred Hitchcock as he's announcing the up-coming commercials at the end of the show*) - "I hope you have enjoyed our program. Seeing murder on television can help to work off one's antagonisms. And, if you haven't got any antagonisms, these commercials will give you some."

Good evening, f-f-f-folks! It's time to tune in, once more, to the master storyteller as he delights viewers with some of the most deliciously wicked and delightfully chilling television ever aired (1955-1956).

This program that ran for 6 seasons (1955-1962) has been the winner of both an Emmy and a Golden Globe award.

*Note* - Contrary to what I believe most viewers erroneously think - Hitchcock did not direct all of this program's episodes. No, he didn't. Out of these 39, he only directed 3 of them.

More than 60 years old and shot in black and white- and the show still stands up to the highest quality. The Hitchcock introductions are always hilarious and playful. Essential viewing.

Heaven for players of Hey! It's That Guy. Here you see a Broadway star, there an Oscar nominee, supported by veterans of Hitchcock's films and young up-and-comers. This is fortunate, since the writing is uneven, and the production cheap, even compared to Twilight Zone and Playhouse 90. Still, can you imagine making 39 unrelated episodes in one season? Thirty-nine!
