The Alfred Hitchcock Hour - The Jar


"The Jar" was originally broadcast on 14/Feb/1964 as part of the second season of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.


At a carnival sideshow, farmer Charlie Hill buys a strange jar that he takes home. His young wife Thedy Sue is frightened by the jar and insists he throw it out. He refuses to part with it because it has brought him notoriety and respect in their community. People come from miles to gather in his parlor and look at the jar and the obscure content that represents something different to each of them. Thedy asks a neighborhood boy to steal the jar. When he fails, she opens it and destroys its content. Charlie kills her and reinstalls the jar in his parlor. This time, everyone sees the same thing: his wife's severed head stuffed inside.
