In Suspense's "The Trap" we meet Helen, a woman who lives by herself in a big, empty house. That is, she thought she lived alone, but now she isn't sure. It seems that there is someone else in the house with her. Someone who whistles, steals muffins from the breadbox, and winds the clock. Someone who also seems determined to get her out of the house. Helen's boss thinks she is just seeing, "dark omens and bloody portents in normal everyday occurrences." Helen thinks he is stupid.
Agnes Moorehead plays Helen, a sweet and patient lady who couldn't possibly have any enemies. "The Trap" was adapted for Suspense by Walter Brown Newman and Ralph Rose from a story by Virginia Meyer. This episode aired on June 16, 1949.
