Storyline

Georgie Minnelli confronts Lucky Moore, his old childhood enemy, for interfering in his pinball machine racket. Georgie waves a gun in Lucky's face, but Lucky isn't intimidated. A cop named Larkin has just been made lieutenant, and Larkin vowed long ago that if either of these hated rivals turns up dead, the other had better have a good alibi. Georgie couldn't possibly get away with it. But Lucky has pushed Georgie too far and his old enemy shoots him dead anyway. Now the young gangster is desperate for an alibi. But getting one won't be easy. Written by J. Spurlin

Alfred Hitchcock: Good evening.

Alfred Hitchcock: Some of our late viewers tuning in. One of the commonest questions that people ask of a producer of mystery motion pictures is, "Which is written first, the words or the music?"

Pretty Weak Case
10 June 2013 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The whole premise of this episode is so lacking in reality. First of all, there's a police detective who has openly stated that if one of two men die violently, he will go after the other. Of course, the principle character offs the other guy and then must begin to come up with an alibi. He is so inept. First he tries a restaurant owner who he has helped in the past. This is too risky for the guy. Then he goes to a former girlfriend. Of course, she finds a provocative picture of a chorus girl type and she realizes she is being used. Not to a man who is dying of a heart condition. The point is that unless the police are a bunch of total idiots, he would have left a trail of evidence to convict him. I won't spoil the ending. Let me just say that the encounter with the police detective is beyond belief. I see this as a hopeless, throwaway episode with little to offer.
