During its long radio run, Suspense attracted some of the biggest names in Hollywood to its microphones to play the hunter and the hunted, heroes and villains, and victims and killers.

We bid goodbye to the "First Lady of Suspense" as Agnes Moorehead stars in three old time radio thrillers. First, she plays a high school teacher who tries to save her student from a grisly end behind the wheel of a hot rod in "The Empty Chair" (originally aired on CBS on September 21, 1953). Then, Ms. Moorehead plays a mother who's a little too close to her adult son and who grows very upset when he introduces her to his fiancee in "Don't Call Me Mother" (originally aired on CBS on January 4, 1959). And - in the final episode of Suspense produced in Hollywood - she plays a patient who plans to end her relationship with her psychiatrist with a bullet in "Headshrinker" (originally aired on CBS on August 23, 1959).
