Watching the 1955 series, sometimes the Hitchcock links are the best parts!

The episodes are fine, but I had to laugh after one episode where none of the lead characters had died (as expected).

"Well, that was disappointing wasn't it? You'll be pleased to know both of the protagonists died, later that day ... of food poisoning"

Great stuff. Beautiful to have it on DVD.

That blue food coloring kills!

Even floating along the Thames his wit remained ever so dry.

Very true! I remember while watching these episodes on TV as a child that Hitchcock's humorous intros and end comments were the chief attraction. The stories are uneven, some of them clever and well written and others fairly pointless. But Hitch was always entertaining, and he makes the set worth having.

Confused. According to Wikipedia, ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS (AHP) and THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK HOUR (TAHH) are the same show. Was AHP the syndicated version? Why the title change and why do none of the episode titles from the Varese discs seem to match the TAHH episode titles?

New to the series because of the wonderful score releases and want to match it all up.

Have bumped my question to the General Discussion area because it's about the scores and how they match to the episodes.

When Hitchcock realized that the rival anthology "Thriller" made better ratings due its 50 minutes format and the horror leaning, he decided to switch to 50 minutes, changed the title of his show and added more macabre stories and pressured the network to kill "Thriller": that's the story behind "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour".
