Louis Koster is a middle-aged mobster, now running a more-or-less legitimate business and enjoying a beautiful young wife. That is, until he suspects his wife of having an affair.

The Poetry Did It!
11 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very predictable little vignette about a rich crook who has a young gold digging wife. The gangster is very jealous and wants to control the young woman, but he knows that his hold is limited. He brings in a cold blooded hit man to kill both the wife and her lover, but his emotion gets the best of him. This is what sets up the eventual resolution. Lost in all of this is the poetry of the person with whom the wife is having an affair. The pompous gangster is not very bright and doesn't see some things that would have clued him in. The most interesting part of the episode is the byplay between the two men as they discuss what is going to happen, the bargaining, and the deal they consummate. I have this one figured out way ahead of time, but the Alfred Hitchcock episodes make on suspicious of the apparent truths. This is a pretty minor effort for the series.
