Christmas 'Hitch on the Hump' Shorts: Back for Christmas(1956)

I'm going to pretty much let this classic episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents speak for itself, but the story, based on a John Collier story first published in 1939, speaks volumes. I encourage everyone to check out the episode and then read this article from the Senses of Cinema blog written by Hitchcock author Ken Mogg. He digs way deeper into the TV show in this article than anyone I've ever seen. Christmas isn't the main theme of the show as much as a plot point, but it is one of the only Holiday-ish offerings from the Master of Suspense. Well there's this Bodega Bay ornament....


Anyway, enjoy the episode and I'll see you back here next Hitch on the Hump for one more Christmas surprise.
