'Vertigo' and 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents'
19 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having achieved success in writing the episode, 'Together', in the 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents' series on the 12th January 1958, and then contributing to the 'Vertigo' script, Alec Coppel continued to sustain himself in this film which only had research value rather than entertainment.
