Description
 
Suspense
Volume 19
 
 
“And now...another tale well-calculated to keep you in ...SUSPENSE!”
 
Boasting some of the best production values and top stars in the business, the real core of Suspense, what made the show one fans still seek today, was most definitely the storytelling.
 
For scripts, William Spier relied primarily on John Dickson Carr, who either adapted existing stories or wrote originals for the series. Carr had been making a comfortable living as the author of mystery and detective novels, most published in paperback form and featuring such detectives as Dr. Fell and Sir Henry Merrivale. He had long established himself as the master of the “locked door mystery” - complex, puzzling, and plot-driven stories in which a detective solves seemingly impossible crimes. Such baffling tales became a staple of Suspense - but William Spier wanted still more from his creative team.
 
Rather than present fantastic or bizarre stories, Spier wanted tales to mystify and terrify kept close to home, at a street level where every man and woman could see themselves as the characters on Suspense. This where the basic visions of Hitchcock, the man behind Suspense’s first incarnation, and Spier converged: in their individual fields of entertainment, both insisted upon stories where an average man or woman, apparently minding their own business, ends up caught in an ever more tangled web of disaster, fear, and confusion. Conclusions would be left until the very last minute, allowing listeners the chance to not only visualize the story but, in fact, see themselves in the same situation. How would they react? What would they do? It’s no wonder that William Spier soon earned the title of “the Hitchcock of the Airwaves” - and that Suspense soon became a major success for CBS.
 
Thrills and chills delivered by top actors giving the best performances of their radio careers await you in Suspense Volume 19 from Radio Archives, restored to Sparkling audio quality by Radio Archives.
