Alfred Hitchcock Presents Article
What can you say about Alfred Hitchcock that hasn't already been said? Probably not much, but that didn't stop me from trying, in a recent article that appeared at the Criminal Element site. It's actually about the Alfred Hitchcock Presents TV show and more specifically about some of the more notable crime and mystery writers who contributed to the show, including Robert Bloch, Roald Dahl and Ed McBain.
I’ve watched a number of episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents over the years and given that it recently began airing on the Encore Suspense cable channel not long ago, I’m sure I’ll watch quite a few more. What I didn’t realize was what a formidable presence it was in its day. The show kicked off in 1955 and aired for a total of ten years and 363 episodes before it was all said and done, later garnering a vote as Time’s 18th best TV show of all time.
