Suspense producer and announcer William N. Robson introduces the episode "Deep, Deep is My Love" by stating that it is a story about skin divers, "intruding upon a world for which nature never intended them." Here we learn about the dangers of narcosis, or as Jacques Cousteau called it, the "rapture of the deep." The story takes place at Point Dume, a beach located near Santa Monica, California.
Lloyd Bridges was the star of the television show Sea Hunt (1958-1961) when he appeared on this episode of Suspense. He plays Don, a diver who wants to investigate an unusual experience that occurred during his previous week's dive. Don and his clingy wife Joyce are at odds because she does not want him to go on the dive without her. He wants to be alone but Joyce wants them to do everything together. She relents and he escapes to a tranquil underwater realm where there is a golden girl who really understands him.
The radio play was written by novelist and screenwriter Hank Searls, who later wrote the best selling books Overboard, Jaws II, and Sounding. This episode also stars Marie Lynne, Tracy Roberts, and Bill Quinn. It was broadcast 48 years ago on April 26, 1959.
