This episode is an Alexander Pushkin story adapted for the CBSRMT by James Agate Jr., Lee Richardson stars. The story is about a matter of honor to be settled between two military men revolving around the love of the same young lady. The Duel will keep you in suspense, it is well acted, and I thought very entertaining. Creative writing by Pushkin, the original material would probably make a good read. Worth mentioning for Shakespeare buffs is a quote from Othello in the intro... Iago to Othello: "...good name in man and women dear my lord is the immediate jewel of their souls... He that filches from me my good name robs from me of that which enriches him and makes me poor indeed.." Advertisements that I noted: Henry Winkler for Leukemia, The American Red Cross, and Bob Hope with a PSA for High Blood Pressure

Though not your standard "fear you can hear" fair, this was a fun episode. It did make me question, who in their right mind would be part of a duel? Again, if you are in to history this is a great episode. If you are more into classic radio dramas, move on to another episode. 4 stars.
