Dick Powell starred in "Richard Diamond, Private Detective" which was created by Blake Edwards (and he wrote and/or produced many of the episodes) so it makes sense they worked together on this episode of Suspense. I actually liked this one more than I thought I would. As you mentioned, the forlorn bank employee seems to be a popular theme of the time, but this one has some interesting twists. Richard Diamond is a fun, lighthearted detective show to listen to if you aren't familiar with it.

Hi Mike, Thanks for letting me know about Richard Diamond. I listened to this episode again because I hadn't heard it since I posted this back in 2009. Today, I work not too far from where the hotel in this story was supposedly located. So, it is kind of a hoot. Sometimes in these radio stories they just make everything up, but in this case there are recognizable San Francisco locations and details.
