Alfred Hitchcock and Dolls, Puppets
Episode tonight was about a ventriloquist dummy, Mme. Riczincska, inhabited by the spirit of a real woman. Claud Raines created her, and fell in love with her to replace his lost assistant. Later, Hitchcock said that he was once part of a vadueville puppet troupe, hence is theme, Gounoud's "Funeral March of the Marionette!?"
