Saturday Frights - Sean Hartter
Welcome back to another installment of Saturday Frights! This evening for your viewing enjoyment we have episode 15 from Season 5 of Alfred Hitchcock Presents entitled ‘Man From The South”. This 1960 episode stars Steve McQueen (The Great Escape, Bullitt) as a young man who runs afoul of Peter Lorre (M, Casablanca), an unpleasant man who plays on the young man’s own greed and wish to impress a woman he has just met, played by McQueen’s then wife Neile Adams, by offering him a rather gruesome wager.

So turn off the lights and get comfy, grab your favorite beverage and snack as you join us with Saturday Frights and the “Man From The South”!

  1. Absolutely, Doug! Thank you for sharing the remake…take a look at that cast. John Huston, Melanie Griffith, Kim Novak and Tippi Hedren, and Steven Bauer. Though to be honest…I think McQueen had a bit more charm than Bauer. :)

    An amazing ensemble with Alfred Hitchcock piloting the entire series. I always enjoyed these kinds of serials, especially on the television.
