Presenting the Transcription Feature: Suspense & Phil Harris

We start off with a tale well-calculated to keep you in … “Suspense.” In this twisty episode, tough guy actor Edward G. Robinson stars as both himself and as a humble little nothing of a man who has big ideas. Robinson made his mark playing gangsters in movies like “Little Caesar” and “Key Largo,” not to mention the corrupt overseer Dathan in “The Ten Commandments.” This episode is so clever and audacious. Until the very end, the listener wonders what they are going to do with this. How are they going to pull it off? It’s a classic. Then we return to “The Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show.” Usually, it’s Phil who gets caught up in the ridiculous shenanigans. This time it’s Alice, and she has some fantastic lines. This episode directly follows the previous week’s wherein the character of Frankie Remley was forced to change his name to the actor’s actual name of Eliot Lewis.
