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!
Nick Carter - The Vanishing Weapon

Mystery In The Air - The Black Cat
This mostly faithful adaption of Edgar Allen Poe's classic tale of intemperance, murder, and supernatural justice features the unmistakable voice talent of Peter Lorre in the starring role. Lorre is at his manic best as he draws the listener along on his journey into madness at the hands--or should we say paws--of a mysterious ebony feline named 'Pluto'. Mystery In The Air was an limited-run anthology series, which originally aired in the summer of 1947. Each episode featured Peter Lorre in a different spooky or suspenseful tale, "culled from the pages of world literature". Mystery In The Air only ran for eight episodes, but each is an audio gem in its own right.
