For more than a decade, Alfred Hitchcock hosted a macabre television series that bore his name and became a staple in the fabric of our living rooms. From the opening them to Hitchcock's signature "Good evening..." viewers tuned in each week to watch the master at work chilling television audiences, both young and old alike. Hitchcock's involvement with the show was minimal. He hosted over 360 episodes but he did not even direct 20. Under the arrangement of Universal Studios, you now hold in your hands a complete guide to the television series. This book offers a "behind-the-scenes" look at the making of the episodes, and a complete production history. Various chapters cover the 1980s remake series, the paperback anthologies, collectibles and over 100 photos. Hitchcock spoofs, comic books and other television programs directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Exclusive interviews with Norman Lloyd, Ray Bradbury, Fess Parker, Henry Slesar, Gordon Hessler, Hazel Court, Vincent Price, Elliott Reid, Marc Richman, Warren Stevens, Hilton A. Green, Arthur Ross, Joseph Pevney, Ann Robinson, Sydney Pollack, Marian Seldes, Ann Robinson, Julie Adams and many more!

From the Publisher:

Officially licensed through Universal Studios and the Hitchcock estate, "The Alfred Hitchcock Presents Companion" is the final result of hard-work and sweat. Alfred Hitchcock's daughter, Patricia Hitchcock, wrote the forward. The authors themselves have spent years compiling information for this book, and spent no expense on a project that is highly agreed by all to be long over-due. Hitchcock scholars around the world, from Australia to England, Sweden and Denmark, have proofed and nit-picked every aspect of the book, to ensure the content's accuracy. Experts in the field of television horror, radio, and print media have also looked over the various chapters. Story origins have been gathered. The spelling of actors' names have been double-checked. In the case of some episode entries, the plot descriptions have been rewritten almost half a dozen times! We feel this book is as comprehensive as it can be. If you thought you knew everything about Alfred Hitc! hcock, guess again.
