  • A Pretty Interesting Episode About Communism

    I think many people have forgotten the hardship of communism in the Eastern European countries. It was a trial for artists and intellectuals who were more likely to find themselves in trouble and feel the need to take risks. This episode highlights the trouble people had and how they dealt with it. Interesting.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Alfred Hitchcock: (Playing pool wearing an eye patch.) Good evening. You know, this came as somewhat of a surprise to me. I was under the impression that all pool tables were kidney-shaped. I guess that's only true in Hollywood. Our story tonight will be in a somewhat different vein. It is a tale of mystery and intrigue on a transcontinental express. It is called... (He thinks about it.) The title seems to have slipped my mind. It's ah...(Someone comes on with a pool cue.)
      Man with pool cue: You've dropped your cue.(He leaves.)
      Alfred Hitchcock: (Opens the end of the pool cue, pulls out a piece of paper and reads it) The title of tonight's play is "Safe Conduct." Thank you very much.

    • Alfred Hitchcock: Now, I'm sorry you didn't watch. You'll never believe me. A three cushion shot. It caromed off the ceiling, floor and wall and into the side pocket.(Takes an 8 ball from his pocket.) Next week at this time we shall all return our mummers to offer you their usual 26 minutes of drama. And, of course, I shall be back to lay my customary one-minute egg. Good night.
