Classic Premise
1 August 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Classic premise—in a sleepy town a wife goes missing while a nosy neighbor spies the husband digging in the back yard. She contacts the sheriff and his eager deputy who investigate. The husband seems cooperative, but is he really. So what's going on and where is the wife.

It's a fine cast—powerhouse actor Merrill as the husband, series favorite Thaxter as the neighbor, and a towering Parker as Daniel Boone, oops!, I mean as the sheriff. Together, they make the storyline doubly interesting. Plus, Merrill didn't have to bother shaving for several days. It's also a classic Hitchcock ending that I didn't see coming. Still, I could have done without the very last twist, which could have been saved for Hitch's epilogue. But I guess that's a matter of taste. Anyhow, the narrative is an imaginative version of a classic premise and should not be passed up.
