One of the 19 short films Hitchcock directed for TV between 1955 and 1962. This one is on Hitch's most frequent, obsessive subject; the man wrongly accused of a crime. It's less a thriller than a moral demonstration, as we see, step by step, how "eyewitness" identification can go horribly astray. Hitchcock's TV work is rarely mentioned by critics and almost never included in his filmography's, though some of them - like Breakdown, Four o'clock and Lamb To The Slaughter - rank with his very best work. And in some senses you can see more of Hitchcock in these short films than in his features: his dry British wit, for example, rarely obvious in his full-length movies, but markedly so in his many TV adaptations of short stories by John Collier or Ronald Dahl. Any movie lover should watch carefully for those films, most of which were originally broadcast on "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" or "Suspense." They are Revenge Breakdown, The Case of Mr. Pelham, Back for Christmas, Wet Saturday, Mr. Blanchard's Secret, One More Mile To Go, Four o'clock, The Perfect Crime, Lamb To The Slaughter, Dip In The Pool, Banquo's Chair, Arthur, The Crystal Trench, Incident At A Corner, Mrs. Bixby and The Colonel's Coat, The Horseplayer, Bang! You're Dead and I Saw The Whole Thing.
