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 »

Tremendous TV show
22 June 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I am of course pleased to have the whole TV series to watch, after seeing all the other episodes of the shorter series. These stories are all, with no exception, worth the ride, with great acting, writing and directing. Nothing to say about this. But I will only point out that, unlike the thirty minutes épisodes where there always was a twist, ironic ending, here it seems that the endings are, I would say, rather classical, with no real surprises. But I also admit that I have not seen them all yet. Maybe I'll get more surprises as I crave for so much in such tales. I'll wait. But I won't comment those episodes so far they have all been by other users.

I am sure that ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR is not as well known as AH PRESENTS. Such a shame. Even without a twist ending on every episode, it's very important to watch them, especially if you like this kind of stories.
