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

Hitchcock's hour adds Hollywood history
1 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the episode of "death Scene" has a bonus of Hollywood history tossed in in keeping with the overall spirit of the show. the ever impressive mansion used is none other than the formal home of the late great Marion Davie's and has been used a number of times (most notably, the godfather)when ever one wants to capture the old spirit of tinsel town. the other contribution is that capt. Horace brown who appears as a bit part in the auto garage was in fact a former resident of the Davie's manor,having been her only husband from 1951 till her death ten years later. she and hear st never married,but he lived there in his declining years till his death in 1951. just to be familiar with this information somehow casts a rather haunting atmosphere on the proceedings in the episode, that you might think, could there be ghosts at work to help things out???
