It was heard on CBS from 1942 through 1962. Approximately 945 episodes were broadcast during its long run, and more than 900 are extant in mostly high-quality recordings Suspense went through several major phases, characterized by different hosts, sponsors and director/producers. There were a few rules which were followed for all but a handful of episodes: Protagonists were usually a normal person suddenly dropped into a threatening or bizarre situation. Evildoers must be punished in the end. The program made only occasional forays into science fiction and fantasy. Among its science fiction entries were "The Man who Went Back to Save Lincoln" (a time travel fantasy) and an adaptation of Curt Siodmak's Donovan's Brain, as well as an adaptation of an H.P. Lovecraft short story, "The Dunwich Horror".Alfred Hitchcock directed its audition show (for the CBS series Forecast). This was an adaptation of "The Lodger," [1] a story Hitchcock had filmed in 1926 with Ivor Novello. Martin Grams, Jr., author of Suspense: Twenty Years of Thrills and Chills, described the Forecast origin of Suspense:On the second presentation of July 22, 1940, Forecast offered a mystery/horror show titled Suspense. With the co-operation of his producer Walter Wanger, Alfred Hitchcock received the honor of directing his first radio show for the American public. The condition agreed upon for Hitchcock's appearance was that CBS make a pitch to the listening audience about his and Wanger's latest film, Foreign Correspondent. To add some flavour to the deal, Wanger threw in Edmund Gwenn and Herbert Marshall as part of the package. All three men (including Hitch) would be seen in the upcoming film, which was due for a theatrical release the next month. Both Marshall and Hitchcock decided on the same story to bring to the airwaves, which happened to be a favorite of both of them: Marie Belloc Lowndes' "The Lodger." Alfred Hitchcock had filmed this story for Gainsborough in 1926, and since then it had remained as one of his favorites. Herbert Marshall portrayed the mysterious lodger, and co-starring with him were Edmund Gwenn and character actress Lurene Tuttle as the rooming-house keepers who start to suspect that their new boarder might be the notorious Jack-the-Ripper. [Gwenn was actually repeating the role taken in the 1926 film by his brother, Arthur Chesney. And Tuttle would work again with Hitchcock exactly 20 years later, playing Mrs Al Chambers in Psycho.] Character actor Joseph Kearns also had a small part in the drama, and Wilbur Hatch, head musician for CBS Radio at the time, composed and conducted the music specially for the program. Adapting the script to radio was not a great technical challenge for Hitchcock, and he cleverly decided to hold back the ending of the story from the listening audience in order to keep them in suspense themselves. This way, if the audience's curiosity got the better of them, they would write in to the network to find out whether the mysterious lodger was in fact Jack-the-Ripper. For the next few weeks, hundreds of letters came in from faithful listeners asking how the story ended. Actually a few wrote threats claiming that it was "indecent" and "immoral" to present such a production without giving the solution. In the early phase, the program was hosted by "The Man in Black" (played by Joseph Kearns or Ted Osborne) and many episodes written or adapted by the prominent mystery author John Dickson Carr. Escape was a similar anthology thriller and suspense program. Both occasionally adapted the same stories, though Escape had lower budgets--and thus, fewer sound effects and name actors.EPISODES LIST400721 Forcast The Lodger-SUSPENSE Audition420617 001 Burning_Court420624 002 Wet_Saturday420729 006 Philomel Cottage420819 009 The Cave of Ali Baba420902 010 The Hitchhiker420916 011 The Kettler Method420923 012 A Passage To Benares420930 013 One Hundred In The Dark421027 014 Lord of the Witch_Doctors421103 015 Devil In The Summer House421110 016 Will You Make A Bet With Death421117 017 Menace In Wax421124 018 The Body Snatchers421201 019 The Bride Vanishes421215 020 Till Death Do Us Part421222 021 Two Sharp Knives430105 022 Nothing Up My Sleeve430112 023 The Pit And The Pendulum430119 024 The Devil's Saint430126 025 Death Went Along For The Ride430202 026 The Doctor Prescribed Death430216 028 In Fear And Trembling430302 030 The Night Reveals430316 032 Cabin B-13430323 033 The Customers Like Murder430330 034 The Dead Sleep Lightly430406 035 Fire Burn And Cauldron Bubble430413 036 Fear Paints A Picture430420 037 Moment Of Darkness430427 038 The Diary Of Sophonia Winters430504 039 Death Flies Blind430511 040 Mr. Markham, Antique Dealer430518 041 The Abc Murders430525 042 Sorry Wrong Number430601 043 Banquo's Chair430608 044 Five Canaries In The Room430615 045 Last Night430622 046 Man Without A Body430629 047 Uncle Henry's Rose Bush430706 048 The White Rose Murders430720 049 Murder Goes For A Swim430727 050 The Last Letter Of Dr. Bronson430803 051 A Friend To Alexander430810 052 The Fountain Plays430821 053 Sorry, Wrong Number430828 054 The Kings Birthday430902 055 The Singing Walls430909 056 Marry For Murder430923 058 The Most Dangerous Game431007 060 Philomel Cottage -
