Friday's Favorite OTR

Inner Sanctum: "Death's Little Brother" 8/29/48


Inner Sanctum is best remembered for the wonderful squeaking door sound effect that opened and closed the show, as well as the macabre humor of Raymond, the show's host. But the stories sandwiched inbetween the squeaks were usually pretty high-quality as well.


"Death's Little Brother" involves two guys meeting on a train. One of them is traveling to see his long-lost sister to collect his half of a large inheritence. The other guy quickly improvises a plan to kill him and take his place, thus collecting the money for himself.


But improvising a murder plot is never a good idea. Soon, he's dealing with both a blackmailer and the increasingly uncomfortable possibility that someone else might be carrying out nefarious plans of their own. It all makes for a fascinating and suspenseful tale, expertly produced and well-acted.
