  • William Shatner's character tells the story in flashback. Ventriloquist's-dummy stories don't get any better than this! Aired in October, 1957 Emmy winner for "Best Direction."

    • [Closing Narration] Alfred Hitchcock: That was a heartwarming little story, wasn't it? Obviously, heaven does protect the working girl. Now I have a confession (opens the small box containing the eyeball). This is not a glass eye. We were unable to find one, but we got the next best thing. I hope you don't mind. Good night.

    • [Opening Narration] Alfred Hitchcock: (standing before a table, on which is a small box) Good evening. Tonight's narrative is about a private eye - a very private eye. (He opens the box to expose a glass eye) A glass eye is a very interesting object. For one thing, I've always thought a glass eye would be better than the real article: it never gets bloodshot, and being made of glass, it will certainly be easier to see through. This evening, due to one of those delightful coincidences, our story happens to be about a glass eye. It is entitled, "The Glass Eye." See, everything fits in.
