In about twenty minutes, Alfred Hitchcock presents the breakdown of a smug modern man - someone so sure of himself (and of the cosy little world in which he has unthinkingly revolved all his life) that a comeuppance of sorts seems merited. This famous story is presented, in this version, as essentially a dark comedy - with an end-twist rather nastier than we expect. This works immeasurably better than the full-length feature film based on the same source which appeared in 1970 (retitled "The Man Who Haunted Himself"). Tom Ewell, the epitome of urban self-doubt (he'd just starred in "The Seven Year Itch"), is excellent as the rapidly-unhinging bourgeois, whose alter ego is all the more alarming for remaining unseen until...
What more can you say than has been written? Hitchcock was truly one of the best.
This episode with Tom Ewell has a very ironic ending.
You will be glued to the TV set watching this gem.

This is one of the reasons why I like to watch ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS.
It's too bad the show isn't on a leading TV network anymore, now that the so-called "classic" TV LAND network decided to ditch most of the "oldies" and play mostly a crappy blend of 70s and 80s TV shows.
Bring back the good times, TV LAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
