On the big screen, Charles Laughton earned acclaim and awards for playing larger than life characters – figures like the tyrannical Captain Bligh, King Henry VIII, and the cagey legal eagle Sir Wilfrid Robarts. He brought that stature to ten appearances on Suspense. We’ll hear Laughton in the dry, dark comedy “Wet Saturday” (originally aired on CBS on December 16, 1943) and “The Man Who Knew How” (originally aired on CBS on August 10, 1944).
