      • [Closing Narration]
        Alfred Hitchcock: Those of you who like to see nasty people get their come-uppance will be delighted with the result of tonight's tale. Gil took his story to the police, and he and Rosine were properly punished – she for murder and he for intent to murder. There is, however, a brighter side to all this: both have become model prisoners. This concludes tonight's divertissement, but please remain tuned to this channel. I am not familiar with the program that follows, nor the one after that, but I have seen the story we are presenting next time, and I think it's worth waiting for. Good night.

      • [Opening Narration]
        [Tonight, we find "Alfred" not in his standard dark suit, but in an ill-fitting, light-colored coat, a checkered bow tie, a slickly combed wig and he appears to be chewing gum. When he speaks, he has a roughly Brooklyn accent]
        "Alfred", the stand-in: Hiya. I'm not Hitchcock. I'm Alfred, his stand-in. Someone has to stand here while the lights and the cameras are adjusted and all that stuff, see? And the old boy just don't have the time. I got the job 'cause I look like him. That's what they say, but not to my face.
        ["Alfred" looks right, then back, and edges himself to his left]
        "Alfred", the stand-in: I see they're rolling him in. You suppose I'll look like that when I'm his age?
        [The line of a split screen rolls in until it reaches the middle of the screen and the "real" Alfred enters our view]
        Alfred Hitchcock: That will be all, Alfred.
        "Alfred", the stand-in: Arrivederci, daddy-o.
        ["Alfred" exits, taking the line of the split screen with him]
        Alfred Hitchcock: Cheeky fellow, isn't he? Unfortunately, he may soon be more than a stand-in. We are planning to send out a second company to tour the provinces, and "Alfred" will play my part. Which brings us to tonight's thrilling shocker. It is called Jonathan.

    • NOTES (1)

      • Although the episode on the DVD is full length (25:37), there is no scene with the Dr. Mack (Walter Kingsford) and two nurses (Nancy Kulp, Heidi Mullenger).  Dr. Mack is mentioned but not seen.
