Hitchcock combined top flight talent in front of and behind the camera in these episodes. Many of the stories came from his magazine and were adapted by some of the top mystery writers of the day. Hitchcock himself directed three episodes and Robert Altman directed two others. The casts were a mixture of film vets, many of whom had worked with Hitchcock like Joseph Cotton, and rising up-and-comers. A great example of this is the first episode, "The Glass Eye," in which William Shatner tells a story of a lonely woman (Jessica Tandy), in love with a ventriloquist (Tom Conway, brother of George Sanders). Another favorite episode from the season is Lamb to the Slaughter, in which Barbara Bel Geddes finds a unique way to dispose of a murder weapon.
By the third season, the show had hits its creative stride, and almost all the episodes featured Hitchcock's trademark sardonic wit in the storytelling along with some very clever twist endings. In addition, the DVD includes the introductions and closings featuring Hitchcock in which he poked fun at himself, television, and the even-then annoying commercials.
This is a great DVD collection for anyone who likes Hitchcock, old time television, or good old fashioned mysteries and thrillers.
Whatever the delay is, overcome it. Get these out, if possible faster.
And if you happen to be a shopper mulling over this purchase, I can't recommend it strongly enough. Alfred Hitchcock's wraparound segments are worth the price of admission alone. He's warm, darkly amusing, and often downright hilarious. The shows themselves are clever, and often ingenious. Get all three seasons, and help us convince Universal DVD to keep them coming!!
