Suspense: Volume 3-logo

Suspense: Volume 3

Various

Suspense premiered in 1942 and soon became known for its inventive writing and for casting well known stars in offbeat roles. In 1947, CBS decided to take a gamble: Suspense was turned into a full-hour Saturday night feature, hosted by actor and occasional star Robert Montgomery. Many of the hour-long shows were movie adaptations and, with the permission of the original writers, several earlier programs were expanded to accommodate the increased length. Having failed to attract a sponsor, however, the experiment ended in 1948 and, a couple of months later, the show moved back to its cozy Thursday night berth in its earlier half-hour form. Radio's Outstanding Theater of Thrills would continue to be heard for the next fourteen years, closing its final curtain in 1962. This third volume of Suspense contains ten restored radio broadcasts of the original show.
