Alfred Hitchcock was so impressed with the twists in his story endings that he hired him to write a number of the scenarios for his TV series Alfred Hitchcock Presents and after reading Slesar’s story M Is for the Many in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, he immediately bought the rights and had it adapted to air as Heart of Gold on Alfred Hitchcock Presents.  Just one of many, many successful collaborations.
