Let's take another listen to "Mystery Playhouse", that AFRS series that was a "catch-all" for programs from network series such as "Inner Sanctum".
Program 134 in the series is "A Death is Caused", originally broadcast on "Molle Mystery Theater" on October 12, 1945 on NBC. The show was written by novelist Cornell Woolrich, who also penned several episodes of "Suspense" and was regarded as one of the best mystery writers of the 40s. The story concerns a woman that plots to kill her husband by frightening him to death with snakes.
The show was transferred from an original AFRS transcription.
