Alfred Hitchcock Presents - Mrs. Bixby and the Colonel's Coat

"Mrs. Bixby and the Colonel's Coat" (directed by Alfred Hitchcock) was originally broadcast on 27/Sep/1960 as part of the sixth season of Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

The story was later refilmed for Roald Dahl's UK TV series "Tales of the Unexpected".


Mrs. Bixby is having an affair with the Colonel. When he decides to stop seeing her, he gives her a gift: an expensive mink coat. Mrs. Bixby, however, does not want her husband to know where she got the coat. She pawns it and tells the pawnbroker not to write a description of the item on the pawn ticket. She then tells her husband that she found the ticket. She tells him to turn it in and see what it is. She stops by her husband's officer expecting him to give her back the mink coat. Instead, he gives her a cheap mink neckpiece. As she leaves, she sees her husband's secretary dressed in the Colonel's mink coat. (TV.com)
