Incident at a Corner
17 September 2003 | by The-Lonely-LondonerSee all my reviews

Having achieved success with 'Vertigo', Hitchcock tried his hand at directing an episode from a murder, mystery series such as 'Startime'. He was already realising television success with 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents', but was capitalising on the fact that television was now going to progress from cinema in the 60's.
