AHH 1 16T.jpg


"What Really Happened" was originally broadcast on 11/Jan/1963 as part of the first season of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.


Over the protests of his wife Eve, Howard Raydon fires maid Addie when her son breaks a valuable antique. Unwilling to leave, Addie poisons Howard's milk and kills him. An autopsy finds the poison, but Eve is the chief suspect after she is fingered by Howard's mother. Believing Eve's innocence will come out in trial, Addie remains silent about her crime. Unfortunately, the prosecution reveals that Addie's 'son' is really Eve's son from a previous marriage. They say Eve killed her husband to prevent being separated from the boy. As things begin to look worse for Eve, Addie confesses her guilt in a note and attempts suicide. Her suicide attempt is stopped in time and she is forced to stand trial. (TV.com)
