Born into a family of performers, Joan Bennett enjoyed great success on stage and screen in her own right. She won acclaim from audiences and critics in everything from ingenue parts to roles as film noir temptresses and doting mothers. But her film career came to an abrupt end after her jealous husband attempted to murder a man he considered a romantic rival. We'll hear Joan Bennett as a woman falling for one of her husband's music students in "Overture in Two Keys" (originally aired on CBS on January 16, 1947). Then, she's accused of the murder of her boss's wife in "Statement of Mary Blake" (originally aired on CBS on May 4, 1950). Finally, we'll hear Joan Bennett recreate one of her best screen roles as The Woman in the Window is recreated for Hollywood Star Time (originally aired on CBS on November 23, 1946).
