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 »
Yes, Kennedy was most adept as the, "nice," bad guy who could become homicidal very easily under the right circumstances. most memorably opposite James Stewart, in, "Bend Of the River," and Glenn Ford, in "Day Of The Evil Gun." Kennedy worked steadily throughout the 40's and especially the 50's; occasionally cast as the leading man, notably in the post WWII film, "Bright Victory," with James Edwards, about a blinded war veteran overcoming racism. He was also good in "Crawlspace," about an elderly couple who take in a vagrant hippie; with drastic consequences. He was always effective as a second lead, to Kirk Douglas in, "Champion," and, "The Glass Menagerie." He could, however, rise above his material and be a serviceable leading man. Also good as detectives, officers, and authoritative figures. One of the best of the Warner Brothers' players.
