Our Hero


When an auto mechanic named Leo Manfred fixes a limousine owned by Gavin Revere, a famed but over-the-hill Hollywood director, he is invited to join the family for a couple of days. It is here that Leo meets Nicky, Gavin's beautiful daughter and the two youths fall in love. But when Gavin learns about their marriage plans, he fears Leo wanting only her money, and nothing more. To convince the director of his true intentions, Leo takes out a life-insurance policy for fifty thousand dollars, with the payoff going to Nicky. Gavin agrees and the marriage plans continue. Shortly before the wedding, however, Leo makes the fatal mistake of insulting one of Gavin's movies, entitled "Death Scene," and the old man changes his mind about the wedding. Not willing to give up Nicky over a quarrel, Leo takes the old man to a cliff, intending to push him off. Written by alfiehitchie

Hollywood grows old and makes and draws out the genius in Hitchcock
15 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am waiting for this type of entertainment to return to television. The psychological profiles of the characters are as defined as you can get. While the plot has a predictability to it...Hitchcock hooks you into wanting to see the details. This episode comes at a time when Hollywood becomes fascinated with the decay of giants like Bette Davis, etc., fact,there is a kind of 'What Happened to Baby Jane' in this episode. Hollywood rose up from the 20's and told it's own story of growing the pool scene in the this episode. How it is empty and molded. These are the films and television that I loved as a child...real drama and tragedy drawn from "real" life yet, "unreal" life experiences of Hollywood people that they remain, a million light years away from my own experience. This was Hollywood at it's finest and Hitchcock was it's best talent at the time.
