The Alfred Hitchcock Hour

303 posts in this topic

LOL. Hopefully this will be broadcast soon as now it's bugging me!! I remember one with a college professor and some of his students going through his trash, but maybe that was another episode........

I think there was a TAHH about some medical students who stole a

cadaver as a joke and then someone ended up dead or something,

but that's a whole different show. The one with Emhardt takes place

mostly in his house.

Someday I'll clear this up!  No, it wasnt the cadaver one. If I remember correctly his wife was missing too and his students found her hat in the trash. Similar plot, but it could very well be another episode (LOL).

Keep watching the TV. I would probably recognize that episode

if I saw it again. Considering how many episodes aired over ten

seasons, it's no wonder it's hard to keep them all straight. It will

show up one of these days. I have DirecTV so I'm out of it.

I'll report back the next time it airs! I always check the plots on AntennaTV every wknd to see what they are showing. It's hard to keep them all straight. LOL.

Since they show 8 episodes per week, that adds up to almost a season's worth in a month. So in 7 months or so I should have the mystery solved! (providing they dont repeat episodes) The half hour show ran 7 years.....

The journey of a thousand miles, grasshopper. The new Yahoo View

has AHP now available, though not TAHH hour. I haven't checked it out

in detail yet, but it seems there are too many commercials for the program

to be run without cuts, though probably no worse than on regular TV. I'll

see this weekend.

LOL. So how'd it go? I dont think AntennaTV makes any cuts in either show. They did show a Cara Williams episode over the wknd, but it was a different one. Just a matter of time! :D

I counted about six minutes of commercials within a total of

26 minutes of time for the episode, but I didn't notice if that

time was subtracted from the 26 minutes or not. I'll have to

get out my calculator/stop watch function and see for sure.

I watched another episode with Robert Emhardt, the one where

he wants to pay a very high price for a house that isn't worth

it. Of course he has underhanded motives to do so. Don't

drink the lemonade. Jeanette Nolan and James Drury were

two of the co-stars. They were also on The Virginian together

later on.

I remembered the ending of that Cara Williams episode from childhood so I got a kick out of seeing the whole thing.  It does tech you to be careful of what you say.

LOL. Let me know. Yes, I've seen that one too. He must've been in quite a lot of them. (Emhardt)

According to IMDb he was in six episodes of AHP, his last one

being Road Hog, and in only one episode of TAHH, that being

the one already mentioned starring Peter Fonda. Of course he

was in a lot of other TV shows. A growing boy has to eat.

The DVDs of this show are available on Amazon, but they have a warning that they will not play on American DVD players as they are from Australia. I found that to be quite strange. Why haven't they been released here along with the half hour shows?

And in the Hitchcock shows he was a rather mild mannered

murderer when he played one. I think he was at his creepiest

when he played the man who kept following the young couple.

In the end he turned out to be a good guy, or at least not a

bad guy, but even then he still seemed creepy. That will be

the next episode I watch.

Yes, even though he turned out to be the good guy, he still gave me the creeps........

That would have been a good title for that episode--The Creepy Man.

I hope to get to it this weekend with stop watch function in hand.

 

Dan Duryea wasn't much more than skins and bones most of the time.

Zachary Scott was rather slim. Elisha Cook, Jr., short and thin. I'm sure

there are quite a few other skinny bad guys.

Yeah. Royal Dano (was that his name?) You didnt have to be heavy to be a heavy!

But you almost had to be heavy to be an authority figure, such as a business tycoon or political figure. Edward Arnold was prototypical in these roles.

Yep, he was a long tall drink of water, though he also

played sympathetic roles, and had a very distinctive voice.

Yes, he could and did play both types.
