In his final appearances on Suspense, William Powell played against type as characters far removed from debonair drunkard Nick Charles of The Thin Man. We'll hear him as a Soviet embassy clerk desperately trying to defect in "The Man Who Cried Wolf" (originally aired on CBS on February 9, 1953) and as a doctor hunting a rabid dog on the loose in "The Barking Death" (originally aired on CBS on March 1, 1954).
