Alfred Hitchcock Presents - The Sorcerer's Apprentice

(Redirected from The Sorcerer's Apprentice)


"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" was originally pulled from broadcast as part of the seventh season of Alfred Hitchcock Presents due to the gruesome ending. It was later shown when the series went into syndication.


Hugo is a retarded boy without a home. He is taken in by a kind carnival magician Sadini. Sadini's deceiful wife, Irene, performs in her husband's act as the woman whose body is, supposedly, sawed in half. Irene manipulates Hugo into killing her husband. She says she wants to start a new act with Hugo and convinces him that he can perform the sawing the woman in half trick because the magic is in the wand. Hugo killes Sadini for her, but then she backs out on her promise. Hugo knocks out Irene in a struggle. He then decides to attempt the trick and ends up sawing Irene in half for real. (TV.com)
