The master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was as prolific as he was brilliant, producing not only dozens of award-winning films, but also a few excellent television series. Alfred Hitchcock Presents, which won the Golden Globe Award for Television Achievement, was arguably the best of his small screen triumphs. Hosted by the man himself, the series offered viewers short audio-visual stories on a weekly basis, mixing the genres of horror, drama, suspense, and fantasy. The first series is collected here in its entirety.

Good value for Hitchcock fans, but don't expect 'Psycho' levels of thrills. Remember, this was made for American TV family viewing when censorship was draconian. Despite this, if you accept it as a period drama you'll find some episodes outstanding with top names like Joseph Cotten for one.
