Wow... I just heard the Suspense episode (19591108) The Last Trip that was written by Ralph Bell and Eugene Francis. I think that’s the first time I’ve ever noticed Ralph Bell as a writer. It was quite a clever episode, too. Lots of CBSRMT actors are starting to appear in 1959 Suspense episodes... Ralph Bell, Mason Adams, Elspeth Eric (as a writer, too, of course), Teri Keane, Joe DeSantis, Ian Martin, Paul McGrath, Robert Dryden, Leon Janney, Larry Haines... they all seem to have suddenly popped on the scene in that year. Maybe it had something to do with the departure of William N. Robson as producer. That’s the one really big change I have noticed in recent episodes around that time. It looks like one other episode was written by Bell and Francis... Sleep is for Children... Suspense episode from 19600306.

A private detective is brought in by an unattractive woman's brother to investigate her fiance'. Her brother suspects that he really wants her money.

A mighty fine episode -- but, my gosh, the detective was such a sassy, condescending you-know-what. If I'd gone to hire her for something and she talked to me the way she did to the client in this episode, I'd tell her to get lost big time. Sheesh!

This has got to be my favorite episode so far - and I completely disagree with Tracy, I LOVED the detective. The actress is great and the character is great - and the story is interesting, too.

If he had a rich wife, why did he have debt with a loan shark?

I agree with Tracy. Right from the start when the brother was trying to hire the woman detective, she had such a haughty air to her client that she didn't want to dirty her hands taking this case, that I right away didn't identify with this private eye, and I couldn't care less about this case. She (whatever her name was) was no Sherlock Holmes or Sam Spade, or even Columbo! I made it to about the 15 minute mark where the woman detective was talking about the ugly bride really marrying for love, that I couldn't take it any more. This episode has been deleted from my hard drive!
