Fred MacMurray may be best known to generations of movie and TV fans for his family-friendly roles in classic Disney films and the long-running sitcom My Three Sons. But there was a darker side to his performances - a side MacMurray showed in fantastic performances in Double IndemnityThe Caine MutinyThe Apartment, and more. We'll hear Fred MacMurray in two "tales well calculated to keep you in Suspense." First, he's a drummer in a Prohibition-era jazz band in "The Windy City Six," a tale of tommy guns and the roaring twenties (originally aired on CBS on February 8, 1951). Then he's in a crippled B-29 bomber over Korea in "The Flight of the Bumblebee" (originally aired on CBS on May 19, 1952).
