The Alfred Hitchcock Hour - The Cadaver


"The Cadaver" was originally broadcast on 29/Nov/1963 as part of the second season of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.


Medical student Skip Baxter has a drinking problem and a practical jokester for a roommate named Doc Carroll. Doc wants Skip to quit drinking and cooks up a scheme. He takes a cadaver from the medical school morgue and dresses it to look like a waitress named Ruby. He then puts it into Skip's bed as he is sleeping off a hangover. When Skip wakes up, he sees the body and becomes convinced he committed murder while drunk. He wraps the body in a rug and disposes of it. When he returns to school, he finds out that Ruby is alive and that Doc has gotten into trouble for stealing a cadaver. Skip agrees to replace the body to get Doc out of trouble. At the next anatomy class, however, the professor reveals the replacement cadaver to be the body of Doc Carroll. (TV.com)
