Hitchcock Says...


Good evening. Tonight's narrative is about a private eye. A very private eye. A glass eye is a very interesting object. For one thing, I've always thought a glass eye would be better than the real article. It never gets bloodshot. And being made of glass, it will certainly be easier to see through.

This evening, due to one of those delightful coincidences, our story happens to be about a glass eye. It is entitled, "The Glass Eye."

You see, everything fits in.


That was a heart-warming little story, wasn't it? Obviously, heaven does protect the working girl.

Now I have a confession. This is not a glass eye. We were unable to find one, but we got the next best thing. I hope you don't mind. Good night.
