Storyline

David Logan lives at home with his mother and he's still upset that his father left them many years before. He is haunted by an event when he was twelve years old and he came home to find his father with a blue-eyed blond. He tells his mother he has an appointment at 11:00 so he skips dinner and heads to a bar. There he meets a girl and repeats several times that something big is going to happen at 11:00. He gets into a fight with a sailor in the bar and tells him the same and then again with a patron in an Irish pub, now saying someone is going to die at the prescribed hour. When the 11 o'clock news come on the air, you learn the full story. Written by garykmcd

The only reason why I watched this episode is because Evan Hunter wrote it. I don't know what Alfred Hitchcock saw in Hunter's writing of this episode that made him to collaborate with Hunter on 'The Birds'. The protagonist kind of looks like what Hunter looked like at the time, so maybe he saw himself in the character.

I've read some of Hunter's novels as Ed McBain and I haven't been impressed with his writing. No wonder Hitchcock fired him from writing 'Marnie' as this film has more emotional depth than 'The Birds'. 'The Birds' is unique in the Hitchcock canon because it has no music and therefore no emotion. But that may be emblematic of Hunter's writing. There is no depth to it, and this episode is a clear example.
