In "Murder Aboard the Alphabet," the crew of a deep sea tugboat fears that their captain is a madman.
The ship was under the command of Captain Walker for the first time, and it soon became apparent that their new captain had intense peculiarities and a maniacal need to organize everything alphabetically. At first he seemed harmless, but when members of the crew began to mysteriously disappear in alphabetical order, they realized that their captain was more dangerous than odd.
"Murder Aboard the Alphabet" was written by Charles Turrell and produced and directed by William Spier. John Lund starred as Mr. Marchland and Joseph Kearns played the captain. Also appearing were Wiliam Johnstone and Ben Wright. This episode aired on August 21, 1947.
Suspense did this story a second time in 1955, but no recordings of that broadcast are known to exist at this time.
