When William Bendix visited Suspense, it was anything but a “revoltin’ development.” Best known as bumbling sitcom patriarch Chester A. Riley in The Life of Riley, Bendix could show off the dramatic chops he displayed on the big screen when he appeared on “radio’s outstanding theater of thrills.” We’ll hear him as a job seeker who finds more than he bargained for in “Three Faces at Midnight” (originally aired on CBS on February 27, 1947) and as a safecracker trying to keep his son from a career in crime in “The Gift of Jumbo Brannigan” (originally aired on CBS on March 1, 1951).
