This week on The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.
Coming up this week on Encore's Alfred Hitchcock Hour: • "Captive Audience" (screenplay by Columbo's Richard Levinson and William Link): Audiotapes from a mystery author (James Mason) taunt his publisher—are they fictional tales or accounts of actual murder?
• "I Saw the Whole Thing" (adapted from the novel Independent Witness by Henry Cecil; screenplay by Henry Slesar; dir. Alfred Hitchcock): Roshomon-like account of a mystery writer (John Forsythe) in court for the death by auto of a motorcyclist.
• "Final Vow" (story by Henry Slesar; dir. Norman Lloyd): En route to a convent, a novice (Carol Lynley) loses a valuable statue and must travel through an unsavory world to recover it.
