My top 15 episodes not in order : The Hitchhiker William Conrad is the king of OTR voice actors. I really like this one. For some reason, I am constantly surprised by just how good Joseph Cotten was as an actor. His work on Suspence and on Alfred Hitchcock Presents was really something special.
Cathy Lewis deserves some accolades for her contributions too. She added a lot to the show, imo.

Reviewer: Carly Corday - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - August 13, Subject: Ironic how? I don't understand what is ironic about the final show's title either. How is da Debil synonymous with death or endings or finality, unless you're just wanting it to be so, and why would anyone desire that, or suffer that much infatuation with Ole Scratch that he seems to seal with majestic Irony whatever he breathes on, fitting or not, and assume the infatuation is shared by everyone?

This one in particular has been made into a movie. But for me I so appreciate this original better.
Reviewer: Amanda - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - December 22, Subject: I've got a question And you guys are all whizzes! I'm trying to find an OTR episode about a lady mystery writer who witnesses a murder on a beach. She helps the murderer hide the body and ends up marrying him. It all comes unraveled when she discovers him with another woman that turned out to be his sister.
It was one of the best and most audacious stories I've heard yet but I can't remember what series it went with! The Whistler? Somebody's bound to know and I'm hoping one of you fellow Suspense lovers can help me out. There's many reasons the 2 performances sounded a little different. One would be the actor or director wasn't happy the way a line was delivered the 1st time, another and this ocurred more often than you might think is that some people involved with the show had 3 hours to kill, so many would go out to dinner, and a few would have a little "liquid courage," which would most defenitely change the way they delivered a line!
The handful that I've noticed are minor. Ther is ONE Suspense episode that I'm reminded of, however, and I think it would fall under "the most unenthusiastic performance on Suspense" category. Kearns also played poor Mr. Wilson, on "Dennis the Menace" until he stroked out in For high quality productions and good entertainment to listen to in addition to Supense, I suggest most of you already know "Escape" plus another production by "Mr.

Reviewer: NoSpillBlood - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - September 8, Subject: Suspense performed and broadcast twice? The sound of these is good, very good. Kudos to the uploader. It is a somewhat odd sensation to recognize differences in the way lines are read between these recordings and the particular versions I have heard for years now.
