In Suspense's "The Angel of Death," Paul Henried stars as a man who commits himself to a lengthy and self-punishing plan of revenge against his wife.
The episode opens on New Year's Eve...and violins begin to play. John Forsythe begins a narrative in which he explains that he has always been extraordinarily intelligent. And, he tells us that only to explain the series of events which began on the same night fifteen years earlier in London...
John had suspected that his wife and his best friend were involved, but it wasn't until he caught them planning to run away together on that night, that he knew the truth.
A month later, John was on trial for the murder of both of them!
But, John never worried about his trial or his sentence. He believed that his superior intelligence would win out...until now.
