Can You Develop a Tolerance to Arsenic?
4 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the eternal triangle times four. Once again we have the marriage of a dull, relatively unattractive man and a party-girl wife. Her dalliance is known about by everyone, it would seem, but her husband. Enter a man who really has no designs on her, but who fears she may become a murder victim. In typical Hitchcock fashion, we are toyed with. The unfortunate do-gooder finds himself square in the middle of unknown events; his snooping and searching become visible to the husband at some point. What is done with this is the subject of the show. It is a bit far-fetched to say the least, but these tightly plotted little short stories force this. It is certainly an example of no good deed going unpunished.
