Rarely seen TV Show but very good on suspense
23 September 1999 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

Hitchcock directed one episode of NBC's Suspicion episodic drama series, entitled 4 O'Clock, even though his own Alfred Hitchcock Presents was still airing on CBS.

A man who works in a clock repair store suspects his wife is meeting with someone in his own house while he is at work. He decides to get his revenge, which allows Hitchcock to work his magic and add lots of suspense and plot twists for you in just an hour's time.

TVLand broadcast this during their 100th birthday tribute to Hitchcock, but who knows if they will broadcast it again later. If you get a chance to see this, please take advantage of the opportunity!
