SUSPENSE—Episode 25: The House in Cypress Canyon

Updated: Mar 19, 2022

By John C. Alsedek:

This is another one that was originally done on the 1940s SUSPENSE—I think Robert Montgomery played the lead. But we got some pretty high praise when a noted radio drama historian told me that, as much as he loved the original, this one was even better. Ron and Lizzie are sooooo good here.

Episode 25: "The House in Cypress Canyon" Stars: Ron Bottitta, Elizabeth Gracen, Rocky Cerda, Daniel Hackman, Brett Thompson, and Daamen Krall

Newlyweds rent a house in the hills above Hollywood only to find that it has a closet that cannot be opened—at least, not from the outside.

Adapted for SUSPENSE by John C. Alsedek & Dana Perry-Hayes from the radio play by Robert L. Richards.

I share his passion for radio drama.

Growing up I was introduced to old radio series as I went to the library to"check out cassettes" pool old shows.

I regularly listen to the classic radio on Siriux XM.

I have really enjoyed SUSPENSE being updated with new actors.

Looking forward to all new
