Old Time Radio: SUSPENSE "The Lodger" (July 1940)

I recently discovered a batch of old time radio dramas on YouTube—which means I can embed them in the blog here for your listening pleasure. One of the premier drama series of the Golden Age of Radio, CBS Radio's Suspense was broadcast from 1942-1962. The pilot episode, created June 1940, was directed by Alfred Hitchcock—who adapted Marie Belloc Lowndes' novel The Lodger, a story the director had filmed in 1926. Here is the radio drama version, in three parts:

Suspense: The Lodger Part One

Suspense: The Lodger Part Two

Suspense: The Lodger Part Three
