Alfred Hitchcock Presents: Man With A Problem

One of the great things about the web is now we don't have to just tell you about a great episode from a TV series and hope you own it on DVD or that it shows up on TV at some point, we can actually show you the episode as well. Video after the jump!

This is an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents from November, 1958 titled "Man with a Problem." It stars someone who would later go on to one of the great sitcoms, Elizabeth Montgomery, as well as Peter Mark Richman (who has been in everything) and Gary Merrill, who is the man with the problem in question.

I won't say anything about the episode that gives away the cool twist, because whenever anyone tells me that a TV show or movie has "a twist you'll never believe," well, that gives me a clue to what I should look out for and it doesn't quite work. So I won't even tell you what the plot is all about. I'll just say that it involves love and marriage.

I'd love to see an anthology series like this on television again. Oh, they've tried with some shows in recent years (including Fear Itself and a new lame version of The Twilight Zone), but for the most part, the anthology series has gone the way of the variety show. It would be great to have a weekly drama series on TV again, one with self-contained episodes featuring various actors and actresses each week. Wouldn't that be great?
