Before he was an Oscar nominee, Jeff Chandler was a busy radio actor. He played a western lawyer, private eye Michael Shayne, and bashful biology teacher Mr. Boynton in Our Miss Brooks. He also played supporting roles on "radio's outstanding theater of thrills." But after his breakout film role and his rise to leading man status, Chandler moved into starring roles on Suspense. We'll hear him in "The Steel River Prison Break" (originally aired on CBS on September 3, 1951) and "The Case Against Loo Doc" (originally aired on CBS on January 7, 1952).
