Quotes

Alfred Hitchcock - Host: I'm inventing a device that should make tennis much more enjoyable. It suddenly raises the net half a foot just as the victor leaps over to offer condolences to the loser. Through it, I hope to add what is lacking in tennis... laughs.

Solid Hitchcock. Actor Robert Horton was an early favorite of the series. Certainly, he could play the handsome, virile young man to the proverbial T. Here, he shills for a bookie, using his manly charms as a part-time gigolo. That is, until he runs into a flirty young widow (Furstenberg). Their initial scene together is a little gem of predatory cats circling one another-- she all coy and leading, he all self-assured and playing the game. The innuendo is perfect for the restrictive 1950's. Just as importantly, it's hard to know where the story is going. When it comes, the payoff itself is mildly amusing and suitably ironic. Excellent turn by both performers, but what, I wonder, became of Furstenberg. She certainly had a distinctive look about her.
