For his third and fourth visits to Suspense, James Mason played two criminals who feel the pressure of the law closing in on them. In two different tales, the star of North by Northwest and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea proves once again that the wages of sin is death. First, he’s “The Greatest Thief in the World” (originally aired on CBS on June 21, 1951). Then, he recreates his film role in an adaptation of Carol Reed’s 1947 classic noir film Odd Man Out (originally aired on CBS on February 11, 1952).
