Keenan Wynn gave a fine performance in the "Charlie, He Couldn't Kill a Fly" ep of "Kraft Suspense Theatre"
14 August 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Charlie Kling (Keenan Wynn) is a drunk filled with dreams who no one respects which include his wife, JoAnne (Beverly Garland), and son, Frankie (Michael Burns). In fact, JoAnne has fallen for her boss, Lou Franklin (Richard Kiley) and is going to tell Charlie about her leaving him. But on his way home, Charlie stumbles into a murder of a drug dealer moments after it happened and since the knife is wiped clean of fingerprints, he's the leading suspect. I'll stop there and just say that this was a very compelling ep of "Kraft Suspense Theatre" with Wynn especially in good form with the way his character goes through several changes in his personality with the flip of the coin. He's the main reason to watch with the others also almost as good. So on that note, "Charlie, He Couldn't Kill a Fly" is a highly recommend ep of "Kraft Suspense Theatre".
