  • Has Karen committed a murder whilst drunk? She can't remember.

    8.0
    A grisly account of alcoholism, very far from the usual type of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" story, but impressive; it never sinks to the Stanley Kramer finger-pointing level, and sententious speeches are mostly absent. The whodunit - or whodunwhat - element is also kept at a minimum, although it serves to justify including this grim yarn in this particular anthology series. The middle-class elegance and "niceness" of Phyllis Thaxter in the central role make the horror of the relentlessly bleak denouement that much more effective. Even the Hitchcockian wrap-up is subdued; every once in a while, he did stories like this to make a sharp change from the usual gruesome fun.moreless

    • (Opening Narration)
      Alfred Hitchcock: (Tied and gagged, but he get loose.) Oh, oh. Good evening. Thank you for waiting. I was tied up in a story conference. The writers seem to have escaped, with the secretary, too. i wonder if they left the story behind. Oh yes, here it is. It's called "Never Again." May I show it to you?

    • (Closing Narration)
      Alfred Hitchcock: Ladies and gentlemen, may I just for this once, depart from our customary epilogue. Tonight we have brought you a drama based on one of Adela Rogers St. John's most powerful stories with the hope that somewhere, somehow, it will help someone.
