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

Walt Disney refused to allow Alfred Hitchcock to film at Disneyland in the early 1960s because Hitchcock had made "that disgusting movie Psycho (1960)". Hitchcock's intended project is unidentified at this time, but it may have been for an episode of his TV series. See more »
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.
