Show Directory Renaming 

In an effort to make shows easier to find in the future, we have renamed many show directories. Since there are so many shows starting with the word "The", we are skipping it. If you're looking for "The Shadow", look under "S" and so on. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

New Podcast at Mysteryshows.com - "Suspense - A Little Matter Of Memory" 

SUSPENSE September 30, 1954 "A Little Matter of Memory" was based on the story by James Helvick. A couple staying in an isolated cottage return from a walk only to discover a note on their door telling of a dangerous maniac on the loose. Very tense beginning and middle with some quintessential radio drama scenes, but the Third Act problems are nigh insurmountable. Having set the plot in motion, there are only a couple of ways that it can end. But kudos to Norman MacDonnell who produced and directed. Lawrence Dobkin played Edward and Paula Winslowe played Joan. Also appearing were Edgar Barrier, Joseph Kearns, and Richard Peel. James Helvick was a pseudonym for Francis Claud Cockburn (1904-1981), a British journalist and novelist who wrote an interesting book about the phenomenon of the best-selling novel. (He was also the cousin of Evelyn Waugh.)

New Podcast at Mysteryshows.com - Suspense - The Face Is Familiar 

One of the rare comical episodes of Suspense. Arthur Ross (writer) Elliott Lewis (director) and guest star Jack Benny combine to give us a whimsical thriller about a talkative small-town nobody who runs into an old acquaintance... who happens to be a bank robber. Jack is soon playing the leading role in a hold-up without knowing it. The robbers' theory is that he's such a boring and unmemorable type that none of the witnesses will even be able to describe him! Show review contributed by Mike from our OTR forum. Thanks Mike!
