One of Hollywood’s top stars of the 1940s, Joseph Cotten was practically a member of the family on Suspense, making 18 appearances between 1944 and 1959. The star of Shadow of a Doubt and The Third Man excelled at playing both noble heroes and charming villains, and he got to do both frequently on “radio’s outstanding theater of thrills.” We’ll hear him in “Crime Without Passion” (originally aired on CBS on May 2, 1946) and “Fly By Night” (originally aired on CBS on September 28, 1950).
