Van Heflin bids goodbye to the podcast with his final three appearances on Suspense. First, he's a man who waits years to finish a duel in "The Shot" (AFRS rebroadcast from October 12, 1953). Then, Heflin plays the infamous Public Enemy #1 in "The Last Days of John Dillinger" (originally aired on CBS on May 10, 1954). Finally, he stars as a drifter who wanders into a town and a murder frame in "Too Hot to Live" (originally aired on CBS on April 12, 1959). And as a bonus, we'll hear him as Philip Marlowe in a radio adaptation of Raymond Chandler's "Red Wind" (originally aired on NBC on June 17, 1947).
