Three of the episodes in the third season of ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS were directed by Hitchcock himself: "The Perfect Crime," "Lamb to the Slaughter" and "Dip in the Pool." The rest were overseen by a number of fine directors, including Robert Altman, Arthur Hiller and Don Taylor. MCA/Universal's large talent pool supplied the many fine actors who appeared in this and all the other seasons the show was in production.

By season #3, ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS had really hit its stride. This DVD set is a terrific package of some of the finest programming the Golden Age of Televison ever produced. The first two years of the show are also available in complete season box sets.

For a fine bargain-priced compilation of Hitch's British-era movies, try the ULTIMATE HITCHCOCK COLLECTION. It offers 18 vintage titles as well as two TV episodes.

"Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Season 3" contains several of my personal favorite episodes from Mr. Hitchcock's long-running anthology series from the 1950s and 1960s, such as "The Perfect Crime", "Dip In The Pool", and the classic tale of a housewife scorned (and armed with frozen meat), "Lamb To The Slaughter".

Coincidentally (well, probably not), all three of the above-mentioned episodes were directed by Mr. Hitchcock himself, which tends to make this writer think that when Hitch himself is at the helm, a certain extra "something" is added to that particular program. It's hard to define what it is, though. It seems to be a special "Hitch Quality" that raises the level of the episode a notch or two.

The list of guest stars that put in appearances in this third season of "AHP" is fairly impressive indeed, including one of the "masters of horror", Vincent Price, who (as usual) is very good in "The Perfect Crime".

And what better guest star could there possibly be for an episode of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" than Mr. Price? Vincent's very presence in a TV show or motion picture conjures up in the viewer's mind ample thoughts of suspense, mystery, and murder, which makes him made to order for Mr. Hitchcock's television series.

Other familiar faces that can be found in this third-season collection are:

Joseph Cotten, Jack Klugman, Mildred Natwick, William Shatner, Jeanette Nolan, E.G.

Great program, no doubt. But I have to mention one particular episode, The Glass Eye. I saw it once on Nick at Nite several years ago, and it stayed with me since. It has one of those amazing endings that leaves your mouth open. Those who have seen it know what I am talking about. Worth it for this episode alone.

This is one of my favorite anthology programs, just as fun as The Twilight Zone. A bit more macabre, definitely.

I never got to see this show when it aired in the 50's and 60's. I had to go to bed early. So finally seeing these magnificent episodes is like finding a buried treasure. The stories are great (they have that devious little twist at the end), the actors are top-notch, and for me, they are nostalgic time capsules of the world of my childhood days.
The first 3 seasons were just marvelous, and I devoured them with great relish, and happily looked forward to the many upcoming seasons, to be released, I thought, on DVD. Well....it's autumn (same time of year that the first three seasons were released on DVD), and Season Four ain't nowhere to be seen. Was it too good to last? Or are WE the ones this time, who are victims of a Hitchcockian plot? Is this the perverse twist at the end of OUR story?

Featuring a top notch array of Hollywood actors such as Peter Lorre (who had appeared in "The Man Who Knew Too Much" and "Secret Agent" two early Hitchcock classics), Jack Klugman, William Shatner, Joseph Cotton (another Hitchcock veteran)and Fay Wray, many of the show's episodes where directed by talented folks such as John Brahm (who directed the remake of Hitch's silent classic "The Lodger"), Paul Henreid (who appeared in the classic "Casablanca" and was blacklisted in 1952. Hitch's show gave him steady employment), Robert Altman ("M*A*S*H", "McCabe and Mrs. Miller", "Short Cuts")and other talented film/TV veterans.

Alfred Hitchcock truly was the first director as celebrity. It began with the cameos, his droll sense of humor and a business deal (the opportunity to host his own TV program and make lots of money). The third season of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" remains one of the pinnacle years for the program. Although Hitch only directed three episodes, all three are classic Hitch.

Produced by Norman Lloyd (who appeared in Hitchcock's "Saboteur" and "Spellbound")and long time Hitchcock associate Joan Harrison, the series works like the best short stories--involving you in the suspense story at hand often with a droll, witty sense of humor.

The third season varies in quality but overall looks pretty good in its first ever complete presentation on DVD (there was a single disc of the TV shows available in the first Universal Hitchcock box set). It's a pity there aren't any extras or commentary tracks (particularly on the best episodes such as "Lamb to the Slaughter")but the show is presented at an affordable price. We get all 39 episodes on five discs.
