Abstract:

"For more than a decade Alfred Hitchcock hosted a macabre television series that bore his name, and became a staple in the fabric of our living rooms. From the opening theme to Hitchcock's signature "Good evening...", viewers tuned in each week to watch the master at work...chilling television audiences, both old and young alike. Hitchcock's involvement with Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour was minimal--to say the least. He hosted over 360 episodes, but he didn't even direct twenty. Yet, the director whose name woud become synonymous with film students and modern-day film-makers, found himself a world-renowned celebrity, and even his private life was often in turmoil. Under the arrangement of Universal Studios...a complete guide to the television series. This book includes a "behind-the-scenes" look at the making of many of the episodes, and why the program left the air after ten years on network television. This book also includes the 1980s remake series, a chapter documenting all the Alfred Hitchcock Presents collectibles (including paperback anthologies), and over 100 photos. Various chapters by experts include insight into the Hitchcock spoofs, comic books, the Hitchcock-produced Dark Intruder, Psycho, and the Suspicion television series. With exclusive interviews with Fess Parker, Ray Bradbury, Henry Slesar, Norman Lloyd, Gordon Hessler, Hazel Court, Vincent Price, Elliott Reid, Marian Seldes, Sydney Pollack, Ann Robinson, Julie Adams, Wayne Heffley, Marc Richman, Warren Stevens, Hilton A. Green, Arthur Ross, Joseph Pevney, and many more! Even if you are a casual fan of Alfred Hitchcock, or the television series he hosted, this book is a must-have for your bookshelves."--Back cover.
