The Alfred Hitchcock Hour

Show Summary

The Alfred Hitchcock Hour was a mystery and suspense anthology hosted by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock. Each 60 minute episode included opening and closing vignettes featuring Hitchcock, who would often explain some aspect of the day's show and would often offer subtle (or not so subtle) jabs at the show's sponsors.

The series premiered on CBS on Thursday, September 20, 1962, in the 10:00-11:00 PM time-slot opposite ABC's Alcoa Premiere and NBC's The Andy Williams Show. In its third season, the show moved to NBC and was shown on Monday 10:00 to 11:00 PM. On NBC it was broadcast opposite ABC's Ben Casey and CBS's Slattery's People.

The Alfred Hitchcock Hour featured both original works produced directly for television and adaptations of existing source material. Some authors whose work was adapted for the series include: Cornell Woolrich, Ellery Queen, H.G. Wells, Henry Slesar, John Wyndham, William Link, Ray Bradbury, and Robert Bloch. The show also featured work by famous (or soon to be famous) directors Alfred Hitchcock, Sydney Pollack, and William Friedkin.

  • Indeed a guilty pleasure

    9.3
    Indeed this is a guilty pleasure and don't know why people are ripping this apart. As I know it isn't as good as Alfred Hitchcock Presents. But anything with Alfred Hithcock is great in it. You got to love Hitch in that tuxedo for in Presents he wore a suit and an occasional tux. Loved the episodes of the Jar and the one about the girl turning into a doll.
  • I can't believe I actually enjoyed this! It's like one of life's guilty pleasures.

    I can't believe I actually enjoyed this! It's like one of life's guilty pleasures. You know you're not supposed to enjoy it that much but you can't help enjoying it. I can't believe I'm typing this but long live The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. You have one more (secret) supporter here!
  • This isn't the first anthology of Hitchcock, but it is what he has been doing for a long time. A mix of suspense, violence, and mystery.

    8.2
    It is a very good show. I believe that the 1 hour time capacity is nice for good stories by Hitchcock. His explanations before and during the show are fun to watch. He creates a different world for us to go into and see. If you want a Twilight Zone minus the martians, then Hitchcock is the answer.
