Introduction

"Lamb to the Slaughter" (directed by Alfred Hitchcock) was originally broadcast on 13/Apr/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".

Synopsis

Mary Maloney is a devoted wife and an exceptional housekeeper. One day, her police chief husband tells her he's leaving her for another woman. An angry Mary accidentally kills him by hitting his head with a frozen leg of lamb. She calls the police and tells them she was at the store when the murder took place. The investigating officer is further frustrated when he cannot find the murder weapon. Knowing of the long and hard hours spent looking into the case, Mary invites the officer and his men for a bite to eat. They dig into Mary's leg of lamb. The officer says, "For all we know, it (the murder weapon) might be right under our very noses." (TV.com)
