Dan has just been released from prison, and Lois is terrified. While he was behind bars, Dan's brother was shot and killed while trying to escape from the police, because Lois had told the police where he was hiding. Everyone whom Lois asks for help knows that Dan holds her responsible, and will not help her. So Dan confronts her in her room alone, prepared to kill her no matter how hard she begs for mercy. Dan is then baffled when Lois tells him to go ahead, since she is in despair and has nothing to live for. Written by Snow Leopard

Film Noir Candy
20 June 2006 | by JoropukkiSee all my reviews

Caught this one on Late Night TV. As a child of mid-fifties, I'm naturally prone to like ladies and gents from that epoch, as they bring to mind mom and dad. The men's dresses were smart and the ladies looked like a woman should.

This episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents gives the extra bonus of seeing Gene Barry before the classic Bat Masterson times. Man, do I love the epoch! Yes I do, and this Film Noir Candy gets an eight for that. It's a sign of true cinematic art that this part of a TV series has stood the test of time.

As I don't like giving away spoilers, I just point to the Hitchcockean cruelty in the storyline. Sir Alfred didn't seem to believe in Christian values. He'd been immensely popular in Ancient Rome.

Cold and nice as a water melon in a fridge -- stabbed with a fruit knife.
