For his final visit to Suspense, three-time Academy Award nominee Kirk Douglas starred as a man whose wandering eye lands him and his new love in danger. The star of Spartacus and Ace in the Hole brings his trademark explosive style of acting to “The Butcher’s Wife” (originally aired on CBS on February 9, 1950). Then, he recreates his role from William Wyler’s Detective Story in an April 26, 1954 broadcast from The Lux Radio Theatre.
