Fun From 50's TV... With Hitch and Some Great Stars
L. Shirley | fountain valley, ca United States | 06/10/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Alfred Hitchcock Presents - Volume 2" are four fun and entertaining episodes from Hitch's TV series of the 50's. The four included in Volume 2 are from 1955 and 1956. So settle back, and enjoy the fun with Hitch and some great stars of the 50's.

First up is "Revenge". A newlywed who has already had a stress related "small breakdown of sorts", is attacked in her trailer home, while hubby is at work. She is dazed and confused and left in a terrible state. Hubby wants to make sure the perp gets what's coming to him. It stars Ralph Meeker and Vera Miles. Also look for Frances Bavier(Aunt Bea from Mayberry).

"Breakdown" stars Joseph Cotton as the rich uncaring tycoon Mr. Callew. He's just fired a long time employee and can't even stand to talk to the snivler who is devasted by the loss of his income. When Callew is an an auto accident and mistaken for dead, he must find a way to make them see he is alive...will he become a snivler himself?

Sir Cedrick Hardwick heads up a family in trouble in "Wet Saturday" When his daughter bashes in the head of her ex-lover, Dad must find a way to cover up the crime to protect the fine family name.

"Mr Blanchard's Secret", has a mystery writer with a big imagination(and a bit of a snoop) thinking there was foul play in her negihbor's house. This one is a spoof on "Rear Window". Mary Scott and Meg Mundy star.

All four are introduced with the wit and wisdom of Hitch himself. The intro scenes are pretty scratchy, but the stories themselves look much better, but are not pristeen. There are no commercials(and the editing here was excellent), and each episode runs about 25 minutes.

This DVD may also be purchased as part of the Best Of Hitchcock - Set 1.

This is some vintage stuff, and a real treat for Hitch fans.

Goood Eeevening and enjoy....Laurie"
