Well worth seeing--and it made me want to see more!
16 October 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is only the second episode of "Suspense" I've seen and it makes me want to see more. Unfortunately, there are only two now available for download at archive.org and I'll have to see if I can find more elsewhere.

"The Debt" is a good show but what I enjoyed most was seeing two future stars before they were famous. One is obvious--Brian Keith looks just like he did when he was the cheerful 'Uncle Bill' on "Family Affair"--though he's as nasty as a scorpion! The other is far less obvious. The nice young man who stars in this one is Conrad Janis--who gained minor fame on later series such as "Quark" and "Mork & Mindy". However, by the 1970s he'd become very bald and had really changed a lot. Here in "Suspense" he had a rare change to star in a TV show.

The show is about a young drifter who is hungry and approaches a family for a handout. The father (Paul Ford) tells him to go away, but the nice daughter insists he stays for dinner. However, soon a murder is committed and the story gets very suspenseful, indeed. I could say more, but it really would spoil the twists and turns this well-written show takes.
