The Pied Piper of Hamelin

The construction of the screenplay has two parts, of which the second is Browning’s poem, amply cited. The rest is De Mille’s The Ten Commandments for the tale of bricks and the disaster.

A happy ending is supplied.


The Avon Emeralds
Alfred Hitchcock Presents

The Treasury wants the late lord’s emeralds for taxes, the young widow (Hazel Court) absconds to Nice with them, followed by a police inspector (Roger Moore).


Cheap Is Cheap
Alfred Hitchcock Presents

A miser (Dennis Day) kills his wife to save expenses following upon her discovery of his fortune. The cost is minimal, he even recoups a tidy cash sum by donating her body to science.

One of the funniest in the series, illustrating Windust’s rhythmic understanding of comedy.
