Not just another 'past catches up with former criminal' plot...
11 August 2014 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This episode of "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" for quite a while seems to resemble classic Noirs and gangster movies, where a former criminal who's gone straight for years is suddenly being confronted with his past deeds, which upsets the neat little suburban idyll he's built up with his sweet young wife - murder threats and blackmail from his former 'associates' - but, as always with Hitch, be prepared for some VERY unexpected twists!!

A wonderful thriller, with an outstanding performance by Hugh O'Brian, and a literally breathtaking finale - and upsetting all the rules of 'law and order' which were absolutely binding at the time for movies and especially TV shows; and which NO one but Hitch would have been able, and allowed, to break...
