Anthology series hosted by Boris Karloff that originally told ordinary tales of crime and mystery, but later became a showcase for gothic horror stories, many of which were based on works ... See full summary »
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

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 »
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.
