The Alfred Hitchcock Hour - The Dark Pool


"The Dark Pool" was originally broadcast on 03/May/1963 as part of the first season of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.


Dianne Castillejo is a recovering alcoholic who gets into trouble when her adopted son drowns in the family swimming pool. Dianne is visted by a mysterious woman named Consuela Sandine, who threatens to tell everyone that Dianne was negligent and drunk at the time of the drowning. Consuela says she is the boy's mother and demands money. Consuela also wants to stay as their houseguest so that she can drive Dianne back to alcohol while seducing her wealthy husband Victor. The plan works at first, but when Dianne finds out that her adopted son's real mother died in childbirth, she tells Victor the truth. Victor believes her and promptly kicks Consuela out of the house.
