I recall seeing this on the old Alfred Hitchcock Presents TV show. Don't recall who the actors were but it would have been in the late Fifties. Good mystery and very surprising climax.

The Hands of Mr. Ottermole was also adapted for the TV version of Suspense (1949) starring the great radio and TV character actor, Ralph Bell. The Alfred Hitchcock TV adaptation (1957) starred Theodore Bikel as Mr. Ottermole with two other fine character actors: Rhys Williams and
Torin Thatcher

The announcer delivering the chilling Suspense introduction ... "A tale well calculated to keep you in ... suspense" is the wonderful radio, voice and sometime TV actor, Paul Frees.

The version on "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" changed the ending a bit, because the network could not have crime go unpunished on its shows at the time. Still, it was effective and well-done.

I don't understand why everyone thinks this is such a great story. I thought is was one of the worst Alfred Hitchcock episodes ever. It did not take a genius to know who the killer was. I knew by the title of the episode, duh. I thought that there must be a twist to the story, but I was sadly disappointed.
