Susan Hayward earned five Oscar
nominations and one win for her dynamic performances in stories
pulled from real life. Hayward took home her Academy Award for her
work as a woman sentenced to die for murder in I Want to
Live! and she brought that intensity to her two appearances
on Suspense. We'll hear her in
"The Dead Sleep Lightly," a mystery by John Dickson Carr (originally aired on CBS on March 30, 1943). Then she plays a wealthy woman with a shady past and a plan to secure her own future in "Dame Fortune" (originally aired on CBS on October 24, 1946). Finally, Hayward pays a visit to Edgar, Charlie, Mortimer Snerd, and the rest of the gang at The Charlie McCarthy Show (AFRS rebroadcast from December 16, 1945).
