Delightful...

This is one of the first episode of this TV show I watch. Suspense (49-54). I did not know it. The picture is poor, the first "degrees" of television, but the stories seem very interesting as well. This one in particular. See for yourself. A poor man in distress, who has many difficulties to pay his tiny room rent, who suddenly finds a job through classified advertisement. A strange young woman proposes our lead a job, in a office, to do weird things... And, the following is absolutely delirious, unexpected, I will let you find it out. But I promise you won't regret it.

The only other thing I'll say is that the ending is not like the Alfred Hitchcock Presents' ones, twists endings, with very often a sort of ironical taste; know what I mean. This kind of endings seem not to exist in SUSPENSE, just short "usual" films topics, with a very ending, like classic features.

A little shame for me. But that's all.

I am impatient to watch the other episodes...
