A very good surprise

I did not know this TV show, produced by American and Swedish - Scandinavian - industry. The host is Lon Chaney Jr; a sort of Alfred Hitchcock. See what I mean? I only saw the first of the 13 episodes. And it seems very thrilling. I am impatient to see the rest of them. This very first one tells us the story of a young couple, where the husband, after a car accident, has a hand transplant. A hand that belonged to a murderer. Doesn't that sound familiar to you?

It is written by the famous Curt Siodmak, who gave us masterpieces such as DONOVAN'S BRAIN or MAGNETIC MONSTER, and many other screenplays for movies. He directed this episode. And I admit that this topic about the devil hand was already shown with Robert Florey's BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS or Oliver Stone's THE HAND.

Very entertaining 30 minutes episode. I'll try to comment the other twelve.
