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 <>

Did You Know?


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 and 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 70th anniversary of Auschwitz's liberation See more »

My all-time favorite television show
5 July 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I occasionally hear of people making lists of the all-time best tv series (TV Guide did it recently), and they never seem to mention either of Hitchcock's Television series, even though these are the same people that call Hitchcock among the greatest directors. I watched this show all the time when I was younger (or so I seem to remember), but it does not seem to be on very often any more. Hitchcock's shows are much better than his movies, in my opinion. The thing about the show is that it is limited to only an hour, so the story is forced to progress more quickly, and keeps me interested more easily. My favorite episodes are "The Return of Verge Likens" with Peter Fonda, "The Man from Rio" with Peter Lorre and Steve McQueen, and "One More Mile to Go."
