Suspense's "Return Trip" is a vivid tale of three nervous passengers on a bus trip down a mountain road in a blizzard. The bus has just left an isolated mental asylum in the mountains and has to travel fifty miles to return to civilization. Why are the passengers so nervous? Shortly after leaving the asylum, the bus was stopped by policemen looking for an escaped inmate. The police warned the bus driver not to go down the road, but the passengers wanted to keep going.
If they had stayed, they might have been snowbound at the asylum for days, but now they run the risk of meeting the escaped lunatic on the road.
"Return Trip" was written for Suspense by Maurice Zimm and was produced/directed by William Spier. Elliott Reid, in one of his six appearances on Suspense, starred as the bus driver. Also featured were Cathy Lewis, Wally Maher, and Raymond E. Lawrence. This episode aired on June 27, 1946.
