Tonight’s episode of Suspense features Boris Karloff as the mysterious Mr. Bronson, a scientist living in London in 1897. Bronson gives lodging to Hettie (Felicia Montealegre) on the condition that she do the housework, that she never got out alone, and that she never enters his laboratory. However, when Bronson discovers that Hettie has struck up a relationship with Tom (Douglass Watson), Bronson uses his scientific knowledge to seek revenge.
Perhaps not surprisingly, Karloff is the main reason to watch this episode of Suspense. He’s wonderfully creepy here, playing one his more villainous roles.
This originally aired on June 7th, 1949.
