Suspense Sundays (86) Uncle Henry's Rosebush

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.

"Uncle Henry's Rosebush"
Air date: June 29, 1943
Starring Ellen Drew and Agnes Moorehead
>>Episodes here<<

A very nice young couple, Paul and Carol, decide to visit Carol's relatives - Uncle Henry and Aunt Julie - on their farm.  When they get there however, Aunt Julie is not happy to see them and asks them to leave.  But Paul and Carol insist on staying, especially when they see how derelict the farm has become.  The rooms aren't clean and the barn is a shambles.  Except for Uncle Henry's rosebush and his room which are both well kept.  Paul and Carol however haven't seen Henry at all and Aunt Julie is not talking.  The couple start to fear that Aunt Julie killed her husband.

Aunt Julie has some serious 'splainin to do!  (Sorry, really felt like saying that)  The obvious answer is almost always never the case in this radio show, so it was fun trying to decide what Aunt Julie was really up to that was not murder.  Still didn't get it though.  But in the end I do question Julie's plan cause it is not a good one at all.  Poor decision making there Aunt Julie!

** You may have noticed that I have a new blog design!  I'm planning a post all about it (with a giveaway) for tomorrow, so please visit again!
