Suspense – The Too Perfect Alibi

Suspense’s “The Too Perfect Alibi” stars Danny Kaye as man with an obsession for his friend’s fiance.

Danny Kaye plays Sam, the sweetest friend a couple could ever have. Jack and Catherine think he is wonderful, but honestly, Jack thinks Sam is too wonderful. Sam gives them a house for a wedding present, he gives Catherine a high-paying job, and he always picks up the tab when they do things together. All of this annoys Jack because it makes him look cheap.

Sam doesn’t care what Jack thinks. He is consumed with a fairy tale perception of love, and he is determined to get Catherine for himself. The first part of Sam’s plan to win Catherine involves getting rid of Jack, but the first part of his plan goes too well. As a result, the second part doesn’t work out the way it was supposed to.

“The Too Perfect Alibi” was written by Martin Stern and produced/directed by Anton M. Leader. This was the first of two appearances that Danny Kaye made on Suspense. Also appearing were Hy Averback, Wally Maher, John McIntire, and Paul Frees. This episode aired on January 13, 1949.

Marty Ross: Catch My Breath BBC radio drama

On the run from a women’s prison in the Scottish Highlands, Kate and Colleen are given refuge in a vast country mansion by a charming but rather enigmatic host, Adam Strachan. It could be a decision they come to regret…

The storyline for Marty Ross’s supernatural five-part thriller is based around the notion, found in old Scottish folk tales, of the Beatha Greimach – literally ‘The Breath Thief’ – a celtic demon said to lure victims into a kiss which would drain the soul from their bodies.
