Alfred Hitchcock Presents - Dip in the Pool


"Dip in the Pool" (directed by Alfred Hitchcock) was originally broadcast on 01/Jun/1958 as part of the third season of Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

The story was later refilmed for Roald Dahl's UK TV series "Tales of the Unexpected".


William Botibol is a compulsive gambler. While on a cruise, he enters a betting pool to guess the number of miles the ship will travel in 24 hours. William hears that the ship will slow down to avoid an upcoming storm. The storm passes, however, and the ship continues to speed on its course. He thinks of a plan to slow the ship by throwing himself overboard. He figures that when word gets out of someone going overboard, the ship will slow down to rescue him. He picks out a witness and jumps overboard. The witness doesn't say a word, however, as she's mentally ill and tells no one of his plight.
