Storyline

Karen wakes up in an unfamiliar bed, with a hangover that's even worse than usual. She knows that by getting drunk again she has once more broken her promise to her boyfriend Jeff. Then she realizes that her hand is bandaged and badly injured, and she struggles to remember what happened the night before. She had gone to a party with Jeff, but she felt uncomfortable and lonely, and had started to drink. She tries to piece together the rest of the night, but all she can remember is being angry and drunk. Written by Snow Leopard

Trivia

One of the few episodes in which the serious subject matter (in this case, alcoholism) prompted host Alfred Hitchcock to deliver a straightforward closing monologue, rather than his usual humorous quips. See more »

A Sad Story!
20 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a bit different for this series. It's the story of a neurotic woman who is an alcoholic. It begins as she lies in a hospital bed, trying to put the pieces together of an evening she can't really remember. She has been injured with cuts and just can't remember. We are taken in flashback to the events of the previous days and that evening. She is consumed with jealousy and self doubt and makes life miserable for all around her. Obviously, Hitchcock is going to put a zinger at the end, but this is more "Lost Weekend" or "Days of Wine and Roses" than the usual ironic fare that was this TV show. It is pretty penetrating. At this time, most didn't know what an alcoholic was. Most thought they were those men hanging from lamp poles singing Sweet Adeline. This is really quite well done and quite tragic.
