I did it! I did It! I'm the Murderer!
28 March 2013 | by (brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

****SPOILERS**** "The Master" Alfred Hitchcock really pulled a rabbit out of his hat in this episode, the third in the series, of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" as he presents us with a murder that not one two or even three but four people eagerly confessed to. It'as the murder of that sleazy low life of a playboy Italian Count Victor Mattoni, Anthony Dawson, whom everyone including the police Inspector Davidson, John Williams, on his murder case felt that he so well deserved and earned for himself. It's the fact that four persons including the late Count Mattoni's wife Countess Helen, Rosemary Harris, want to take credit for the Count's murder that makes this case so puzzling!

It's Inspector Davidson's assistant Det. Raines, Charles Davis, who comes up with a clue to why these four admitted murderers are so willing to take the rap in the Count's murder. And it turns out to be a fool proof way to keep the actual killer of Count Mattoni from facing justice and paying for his or her crime! A crime that everyone feels was fully justified.

***SPOILERS*** Like the saying four into one don't go the fact that four persons admitted to a murder that only one actually committed short circuited the courts from prosecuting the actual murderer. But fear not "The Master" Alfred Hitchcock came up with a answer, like he always does, in how this baffling murder case was finally solved and those responsible paying for it in the final few minutes of the program. An answer that was far more bizarre and confusing then the murder and the cover up of it was.
