.........................

"Alfred Hitchcock Presents" - back in the day stuff - some of them were pretty good
this one is set in Vegas - Steve McQueen is offered a weird bet
Peter Lorre is really creepy
the girl is McQueen's real life first wife Neile
both vids combined are about 23 minutes long - pretty good IMO

Thanks for that link! I 'remember when' my mother told me the plot of that show. It might have been January 4, 1960, which was the morning after the show first aired.

Wow, thanks for that Alfred Hitchcock video. I'd watched most of his films but never took the time for his television series.

Love the atmosphere and quiet sophistication of the times.

Did anyone else notice a couple things? The lighter twice doesn't ignite before the wager begins. Steve McQueen refers to Neile, but at no point do they introduce themselves by name.

part of the appeal of this back in the day stuff is the charming, and expressive way that they handle their cigarettes

Remember when we paid every bill with a check. There were no debit cards, there was no direct deposit, there was no electronic payments. If you paid a bill, you wrote a check, stuck it in an envelope and put a stamp on it. I haven't mailed a letter in over 10 years. I have no idea what postage is now. I suspect .60 or $0.65. If you're under the age of 25 chances are you've never written a check in your life and probably never will.

My inlaws refuse to use any type of online banking because they are afraid of fraud.

Turns out you are much more susceptible to fraud doing things the old way. Their mail was stolen and someone forged the checks they sent out for CC payments.

A few weeks ago a woman in the store in front of me wrote a check. I realized I hadn't seen this in years. She gave the check to the cashier, the cashier scanned it, and gave it back to the woman. What the heck. So I asked the cashier and she said when she scanned the check it automatically debited your bank account just like you were using a debit card and they don't need the check anymore. So what's the point of going through all that trouble when she could have just used her debit card. Long gone are the days of kiting checks, young people don't even know what that is probably.

My parents have never used a debit card or online banking. They still write checks for all of their bills and if they need cash money they go to the bank and stand in line.
