Alfred Hitchcock Presents
Alfred Hitchcock Presents was a half-hour anthology series, hosted by the famous film director. A mixture of crime, horror and weird tales, it seems an obvious place for Bradbury's stories to find a home. In 1963 it changed to a one-hour format, and was renamed The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. In the 1980s there was a revival, complete with introductions by a colorised Hitch.
Producer of the Hitchcock series, and director of several of the Bradbury adaptations, Norman Lloyd has also had a long and distinguished acting career. He said this of Ray Bradbury:
I did many, many shows with Ray. You may think I'm a bore because I say everybody's wonderful...but Ray is great.
First of all, he looks like one of the characters from his Martian stories. Ray looks like a Martian - and if anyone is a Martian, it's Ray!
He's constantly creative, constantly dreaming up ideas, constantly promoting his ideas. I'm proud to say that he said this once at a tribute lunch given to me... "We had the most wonderful collaboration between him and Joan Harrison and myself."
... And the material that I got from Ray...was just wonderful. He adapted a story for me once, somebody else's, but for the most part they were all his stories.
