From the Publisher
Officially licensed through Universal Studios and the Hitchcock estate, "The Alfred Hitchcock Presents Companion" is the final result of hard-work and sweat. Alfred Hitchcock's daughter, Patricia Hitchcock, wrote the forward. The authors themselves have spent years compiling information for this book, and spent no expense on a project that is highly agreed by all to be long over-due. Hitchcock scholars around the world, from Australia to England, Sweden and Denmark, have proofed and nit-picked every aspect of the book, to ensure the content's accuracy. Experts in the field of television horror, radio, and print media have also looked over the various chapters. Story origins have been gathered. The spelling of actors' names have been double-checked. In the case of some episode entries, the plot descriptions have been rewritten almost half a dozen times! We feel this book is as comprehensive as it can be. If you thought you knew everything about Alfred Hitc! hcock, guess again.
