Friday's Favorite OTR

Mysterious Traveler: “No one on the Line” 9/1/46

A man is convinced his wife is having an affair. Determined that no one else will ever take anything that “belongs” to him, he plots to murder his wife’s lover.

The “surprise twist” at the end of this episode is telegraphed far too obviously early on. Normally, that would come close to ruining a show like this, but Ted Osborne as the lead character gives such an effectively ruthless and arrogant performance that it’s still a lot of fun to hear him get his comeuppance at the end.
