Number 30: Alfred Hitchcock Presents
The ghoulish and the macabre have always appealed to me and I loved this portmanteau show when I was a kid. The titles were great, using a silhouette the great man drew of himself, and the music (Gounod’s ‘Funeral March of a Marionette’) was perfectly chosen and well used. I can still remember, after all these decades, some of the tales of mystery the shows told. This was a show for Goths before we had Goths.
I must say that, over the years, I have come uncannily to resemble that old grey fat man :)
