Storyline

Seymour Johnston is a vain, silly man, but that's not how he sees himself. Nor does he see himself the way his late father did--as a man who couldn't be trusted with a large inheritance, a man who needed to make his own way in the world. That's why Seymour's father left all his money to his sister, Seymour's Aunt Muriel. Of course, once she is dead, the money will all go to him. But the middle-aged Aunt Muriel does not seem destined to die any time soon. In the meantime, how will Seymour keep his antique shop going? More important, how will he be able to enjoy any of the finer things in life? When Seymour, reduced to eating in a diner, finds a wallet someone had dropped, the answer comes to him immediately. Written by J. Spurlin

Quotes

[first lines]
Seymour Johnston: [narrating] I suppose you could say it began that Easter Sunday. I was spending the weekend at my Aunt Muriel's house in Norwich, Connecticut. A place I was forced to spend many weekends. Not that I found my aunt's company particularly congenial, far from it. But the food was fair and even she didn't have the effrontery to charge me for my visits. Not that she wasn't capable of doing even that. As a matter of fact, nothing my aunt did would be too surprising. But that weekend, she ...

deserves a better review
15 October 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I see that there is only one review of this episode and I feel it deserves better than what it has received. The whole point of Alfred Hitchcock Presents is to create, in half an hour, an interesting character or two and to present the audience with a little twist that they can think about for the rest of the day with satisfaction. It is especially good if the audience has no idea what the twist is going to be, but with little hints along the way to make us realize afterwards that we should have guessed. And the title is always a clue in itself.

Hurd Hatfield is a very good actor, and he was famous for his day because of Dorian Grey. He once said that Dorian Grey was both the best and worst thing that had ever happened to him. He is excellent in the role... perfect in fact, which is why the twist is such a shock. The supporting cast, especially the detective, are great, and it is a lovely episode and a lot of fun. As usual AH does some lovely stuff at the beginning.

Give this episode a chance. It is definitive Hitchcock presents and a lot of fun.
