    Identify: Alfred Hitchcock Short Film
    Hi everyone,

    I remember seeing a short black and white film or program made by Alfred Hitchcock where a guy was in prison and does a deal with one of the guards(?) where he's going to hide in a coffin as an escape plan and the guard(?) will come and dig him up later.

    The last scenes are of the guy flicking a lighter, only to discover he's been buried alive with the guard he'd done the deal with!

    Just wondering if anyone knew the name of it, and whether it's possible to get hold of it?

    Good Luck

    If it was on his TV show, maybe you'll remember it from here;

    This was an episode of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" first aired in 1964,its called "Final Escape". I don't recall this version but I do remember a colour version from the 80s where the prisoner was a woman... ;)
