Alfred Hitchcock was once asked what he did for a living, and he said that he was a Producer. When asked what exactly he produced, he replied, 'Goose bumps!' He was one of the best directors of the twentieth century at producing fright in the viewers. In addition to his prolific movie career, he produced a half hour show that began very famously with a drawing of his profile that Mr. Hitchcock himself drew. Slowly the shadow of Mr. Hitchcock would walk onto the screen, filling the caricature. Only two of his half hour shows have fallen into public domain, and both of them are here. The second episode, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, never aired as scheduled because the alternate sponsor, Revlon, thought that this episode was too gruesome for 1962 television audiences and refused to sponsor it. After the 1962 season Alfred Hitchcock Presents moved from CBS to NBC and was expanded to a full hour as The Alfred Hitchcock Hour and continued until 1965.
