    • (Opening Narration)
      Alfred Hitchcock: (Puts a bullet in a revolver, spins the barrel, cocks it, pulls the trigger. Nothing happens. Spins the barrel, cocks the hammer, pulls the trigger, again nothing.) That's precisely why I don't care for Russian roulette. I never seem to win. There are two revolvers such as this, which play a part in tonight's story. It is what you might call a Western, although there isn't a horse to be seen. We intended to get horses, but they couldn't remember the lines. So you'll be seeing people instead. The cast is a very small one and threatens to become smaller with every passing moment. You see, two of the characters have threatened to eliminate each other on sight. Now, I am sure there are some of you who don't want to see them do that. So I suggest instead that you listen to our sponsor's message.
