Antony Ellis wrote and starred in episodes of Suspense before he became the show's director. From 1954 to 1958, Ellis had the reins of "radio's outstanding theater of thrills" and steered the program into the realm of science fiction with adaptations of stories by Ray Bradbury as well as his own stories of fantasy and horror. We'll hear him starring in "Telling," the story of a man desperate to confess to murder (originally aired on CBS on July 20, 1954). Then, he's writer, producer, and director of "I Saw Myself Running," a surreal thriller about a woman haunted by nightmares even when she's awake (originally aired on CBS on May 24, 1955). Finally, we'll hear an episode of Frontier Gentleman - Ellis' outstanding drama about an English newspaper reporter covering the wild west. John Dehner stars as J.B. Kendall in "Aces and Eights" (originally aired on CBS on April 20, 1958).
