Though he's best known to old time radio fans as lovable lug Chester A. Riley, William Bendix made a name for himself as rough and tumble tough guys in movies like Lifeboat and The Blue Dahlia. He showed off that side of his persona when he made visits to Suspense. We'll bid goodbye to him this week as we wrap up his run of shows on "radio's outstanding theater of thrills" - "Pearls are a Nuisance" (originally aired on CBS on April 19, 1945) and "Break-Up" (originally aired on CBS on December 30, 1948).
