Nifty episode with a good kicker I didn't see coming. One thing that helped put the series on the TV map was acting talent. I expect Hitchcock's name had a lot to do with that. Here the principals put that talent on good display. Stanley Crane (Mantell) owns a little neighborhood grocery and lives in a crowded apartment building. Meanwhile, his wife (Maguire) is a snoop who suspects the upstairs neighbors of suspicious doings. She hounds Stanley, but he shrugs her off. Then one day, there's screaming upstairs and a thud and the wife suspects the worst, or is it just her over-active imagination acting up again.

Good peek into the past when there were still small grocery's, women in flouncy skirts, and merchants knew their customers. Then too, I like the ordinary looking cast appropriate for their everyday roles. Sure, the cop (Simon) doesn't really act like a cop. He shares the investigation and confides in Stanley in unprofessional fashion. Nonetheless, consider how cleverly the script uses the final twist to illuminate what's gone before. All in all, it's 30-minutes of Hollywood showing its non-glamor side and to entertaining effect.
