On November 2nd, Fabulous Films and Fremantle Media Enterprises are set to released all seven seasons of the classic anthology series Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and we’ve got a box set of the complete collection up for grabs, featuring a whopping 6,679 minutes of mystery and suspense!
Join the legendary “Master of Suspense” with 7 groundbreaking seasons of Alfred Hitchcock Presents… featuring guests stars Steve McQueen, Vincent Price, Jessica Tandy, William Shatner, Roger Moore, Walther Matthau, Burt Reynolds, Dick Van Dyke, Charles Bronson, Diana Dors, Sydney Pollock, Leslie Neilsen, Bette Davis and Robert Redford.
Between 1955 and 1965, Hitchcock used these simple words to introduce his timeless episodes of horror, mystery and intrigue. The CBS and NBC show received three Emmy awards as well as a Golden Globe for Television Achievement, set the gold standard for all TV mystery series to come and in the words of Alfred Hitchcock himself, “brought murder back into the home – where it belongs”.
There were 268 episodes –the most famous perhaps being Roald Dahl’s “Man from the South” starring Steve McQueen, in which a man bets his finger that he can start his lighter ten times in a row. Also included is the 1962 episode “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” which was not broadcast by NBC because they felt the ending, involving the “sawing a woman in half” trick was too gruesome.
Hitchcock was a multiple nominee and winner of a number of prestigious awards, receiving two Golden Globes, eight Laurel Awards, and five lifetime achievement awards including the first BAFTA Academy Fellowship Award, as well as being five times nominated for, albeit never winning, an Academy Award as Best Director.
The competition closes at midnight on Sunday, November 8th. UK readers only please. To enter, use one of the following methods…
