Tall, lanky, and with that unmistakable drawl, Jimmy Stewart made memorable impressions in classic films from It’s a Wonderful Life to Mr. Smith Goes to Washington to Vertigo. Stewart was a polished radio performer, whether he was starring in his own western drama The Six Shooter or making visits to appear on Suspense. Though some of his best known screen roles are as upstanding, honest heroes, Suspense gave Jimmy Stewart the opportunity to play desperate men in dangerous situations. We’ll hear him in “Consequence” (originally aired on CBS on February 21, 1946) and “Mission Completed” (originally aired on CBS on December 1, 1949).
