Storyline

Meyer Fine is a casino manager who is so afraid of death that he can't even attend funerals. One evening he expresses concern at the amount of money being lost by a young gambler, who is later found to have committed suicide. When one of Fine's henchmen is killed by fellow mobsters, he becomes convinced that he's next. Terrified at what the future may hold, he begs his butler to help him in the only way he knows how.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents: GRATITUDE (TV) (Alan Crosland Jr., 1961) ***
15 March 2010 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Featuring an amusing but irrelevant Western parody as book-ends, this fine episode is dominated by yet another turn by Peter Falk as a mobster (he was typecast around this time, particularly after having landed two Oscar-nominations in such roles!). However, his illegal casino-owner (who runs the town along with two other gangland factions) has an inexplicable but unconditional fear of death and is looked after by his devoted valet. When one of his men kills a scoop-seeking photo-reporter who had infiltrated the joint, he is turned on by his associates; an attempt is made on his life but, unable to do the 'right thing' and commit suicide, he asks the butler to give him a hand…for which the latter is berated by the accusing cop forever on Falk's tail, hence the film's ambiguous title!
