One of the earliest winners of the "Triple Crown" of acting, Thomas Mitchell was an always-welcome presence in some of the greatest movies of old Hollywood. Whether he was the bumbling but lovable Uncle Billy in It's a Wonderful Life or the drunk Doc Boone in Stagecoach, Mitchell is always a treat to watch with an impish charm to his performances. He sheds that friendly nature for his two visits to Suspense: "Case History of Edgar Lowndes" (originally aired on CBS on June 8, 1944) and "John Barbie and Son" (originally aired on CBS on February 22, 1945).
