Suspense's "Hide and Seek" is the story of a Chicago gambler trapped in a deadly game of cat and mouse.
Dandy D'Angelis is a gambler known around town for his dapper appearance, and he owes money to Ed Bigelow. Dandy put borrowed money on a horse that came in fifth, but he doesn't have the funds to cover his bet.
Bigelow isn't happy that the debt isn't being repaid, and he tells "the boys" to take the "bloom off the dandy man." So, Ed's associates decide to take Dandy for a nice drive in the country -- one from which he won't be returning. When they pass through Dandy's old neighborhood on their way out of town, he jumps out of the car and runs away. Now he has to hide in an alley from Ed's men, but his past comes back to haunt him.
"Hide and Seek" was written for Suspense by Bob Corcoran. Jackson Beck and William Redfield starred. (The voice of Jackson Beck, the narrator of this episode, is one that is familiar to many. Although it may not be immediately obvious, he was the voice of Bluto in over 300 Popeye cartoons.) This episode aired on May 13, 1962.
