Best known as the titular gunfighter in Shane, Alan Ladd broke into stardom with his turn as a cold-blooded killer in the film noir classic This Gun for Hire. He made four appearances on Suspense, usually as tough, terse, hard-boiled characters. We’ll hear Ladd as an ex-con framed for murder in “The Defense Rests” (originally aired on CBS on March 9, 1944) and as a man out to avenge his brother’s murder in the western drama “A Killing in Abilene” (originally aired on CBS on December 14, 1950).
