Suspense – Win, Place and Murder
In “Win, Place and Murder,” a bookie is murdered and two detectives try to find the real killer.
Chris Draper and Laura Lee are competing private detectives who occupy offices across the hall from each other. Laura wants Chris to marry her, but he doesn’t have the money.
As the episode opens, Chris calls his bookie, Joey Gault, to place a bet. When he is told that isn’t possible, he leaves his office to place his bet down the street.
As Draper returns, Joey Gault’s collection man, Mike Ferrago, arrives. He is looking for Frank Pilson, who, he claims, has just shot Gault.
Draper doesn’t know anything about it until he goes across the hall and finds Frank Pilson in the office of Laura Lee. What has Laura gotten herself into? She doesn’t believe Pilson is Gault’s killer.
Is Laura right? Or, is she in over her head?
“Win, Place and Murder” was adapted from a story by Emile C. Tepperman. William Spier produced and directed. Richard Conte starred. Also appearing were Hans Conried, Cathy Lewis, and Wally Maher. This episode aired on April 24, 1947.
