Premise

`Good eeevening.' Hitchcock's classic half-hour series (it expanded to an hour in 1962) has him dryly introducing (and later summing up) each twist-filled story, with many a memorable dig at the sponsor (`Our play tonight is a blend of mystery and medicine. It follows this one-minute anesthetic'). Hitchcock directed some episodes, as did Robert Altman, Sydney Pollack and William Friedkin.
