  • William Shatner's character tells the story in flashback. Ventriloquist's-dummy stories don't get any better than this! Aired in October, 1957 Emmy winner for "Best Direction."

    9.1
    Kids my age (then) weren\'t supposed to watch things like \"Alfred Hitchcock Presents.\"

    That, of course, made it more fun to do so.

    Everything about this episode works, particularly the Master\'s building suspense, bit by bit. I was absolutely terrified by the climax, certain that the character shown whipping the horses pulling his coach was coming after me!



    Didn\'t help that it was a cold, gloomy night in Minnesota and Halloween was already in the air!

    Absolutely fascinating, many, many years later, to see such a young William Shatner at work.

    Could this have been one of -- if not THE -- earliest TV show he was ever on?moreless

    • [Closing Narration]
      Alfred Hitchcock: That was a heartwarming little story, wasn't it? Obviously, heaven does protect the working girl. Now I have a confession (opens the small box containing the eyeball). This is not a glass eye. We were unable to find one, but we got the next best thing. I hope you don't mind. Good night.

    • [Opening Narration]
      Alfred Hitchcock: (standing before a table, on which is a small box) Good evening. Tonight's narrative is about a private eye - a very private eye. (He opens the box to expose a glass eye) A glass eye is a very interesting object. For one thing, I've always thought a glass eye would be better than the real article: it never gets bloodshot, and being made of glass, it will certainly be easier to see through. This evening, due to one of those delightful coincidences, our story happens to be about a glass eye. It is entitled, "The Glass Eye." See, everything fits in.
