Suspense Sundays (132) Korean Christmas Carol

Posted by Charlene // Tags: ,
Suspense was a radio series from 1942 to 1962.  I have a fondness for "Old Time Radio" as we call it now, and Suspense is my favorite show.  It sets up weird, dark, scary, or intriguing stories with a plot twist in the end, and all in half an hour.  For Suspense Sundays I'll give a short review of an episode.

"Korean Christmas Carol"
Air date: December 20, 1959
Starring Lyle Sudrow

During a war in Korea, a soldier happens across another injured soldier and attempts to try and get him to where he's going but unfortunately the man doesn't make it.  The soldier carries out his mission though in bringing a bag to an orphanage.

This is a Christmas related story obviously, so while the war-time setting seemed a bit sad, there's an uplifting twist in the end, that really made this a sweet story.  It's not my favorite of the Christmas tales I've heard Suspense do so far, but the ending really makes up for the slow beginning of the episode.
