Special Features

  • Fasten Your Seatbelt: the thrilling art of Alfred Hitchcock


Season four of Alfred Hitchcock Presents gets under way with "Poison," directed by Alfred Hitchcock himself, adapted from a story by Roald Dahl, and starring Wendell Corey, who'd been one of the leads in Hitch's 1954 theatrical feature Rear Window. The only other episode helmed personally by Hitchcock this season is "Banquo's Chair," based on an oft-dramatized Rupert Croft-Cooke short story and featuring another Hitchcock "regular," John Williams. Emmy-winning director Robert Stevens continued turning out first-rate work during the series' fourth season, as did Paul Henreid, whose credits this year include "Out There: Darkness," starring Henreid's Now, Voyager co-star Bette Davis. Newcomers to the series' directorial roster included Norman Lloyd, who as an actor had appeared in Hitchcock's 1940s features Saboteur and Notorious, and who had been on the Alfred Hitchcock Presents production staff since the previous season. The best examples of Lloyd's output this year are "Safety for the Witness," starring Art Carney in one of his first post-Honeymooners acting assignments, and "Human Interest Story," one of the series' rare forays into the realm of science fiction, with Steve McQueen in the leading role. The stiff competition of NBC's Dinah Shore Chevy Show caused Alfred Hitchcock Presents to suffer a ratings dip during its fourth season, though the series managed to end the year as America's most popular filmed dramatic anthology. ~ Hal Erickson
