Suspense Sundays (152) Deep Into Darkness

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.

"Deep Into Darkness"
Air date: July 22, 1948
Starring Douglas Fairbanks Jr.
>>Episodes here<<

Ken has just been released from jail on good behavior, and tries to get a fresh start.  But he was convicted for manslaughter and he is having trouble finding anyone to hire him.  Angry and unhappy, Ken decides to buy a gun although he's not exactly sure why he wants one.  And then he sees the man he was supposed to have killed seven years ago.

Geez, it was too easy to buy a gun in this episode.  Very disturbing.  Especially since the seller was aware there's something up with Ken.  But anyways, I thought this episode would lead towards Ken doing something crazy because he can't find work, but the twist of the man Ken was supposed to have killed being alive is a great one.  Especially since there is a better reason now for Ken to go 'deep into darkness'.
