Escape and Suspense! will take a brief break between July 5th and July 8th for a vacation/research trip to Hollywood. While I am away my imaginery back-up staff (pictured below) will be monitoring my messages. Send us an e-mail! There will be much more to come in July.
Up until now, I haven't written much about the television show Suspense, which aired 260 episodes from 1949 to 1954. The television show was broadcast live from New York and these episodes have long been considered "lost".
Soon, for the first time in over fifty years, some of these lost episodes will soon become available. The first DVD set of the lost television episodes of Suspense will be released on July 24th. Was the television version of Suspense as good as the radio show? We'll see! If you are interested in pre-ordering the Suspense DVD, I've added an orange widget for this item on the left hand side of this page.
I am currently creating a companion blog to Escape and Suspense! that will be devoted entirely to the television show Suspense. Hopefully, it will be up sometime in late July. Of course, I will continue to update Escape and Suspense! three times a week.
Thanks to everyone who has supported this blog in its first six months. For our American readers, have a happy and safe Fourth of July!
