The original short story was published in Collier’s magazine dated January 11, 1947 – here are page images from the marvelous site [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  It may have been published earlier elsewhere, or submitted to Suspense as a soon-to-be-published story in 1945 or 1946. The original performance was in February, 1946.

Note that the title was Revenge!

Part 2

The site also has the contract for the 1946 performance. Stewart was paid $4000 == that’s $49,800 in today’s dollars.
The image of the contract is at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The contract has interesting items in it. The show may have been intended for a different date. The east and west coast performance times are identified, and they required that you not appear in another radio program for a certain period. In Stewart’s case, it was for a week. The contract is with the Roma Wine ad agency.
The contract is part of a larger page on the site [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Here is the program with its original title.

1949-05-15 Shreveport LA Times


Now we have another Suspense mystery...
Why was the original performance in 1946 titled Consequence, and why was this second performance titled Revenge for some period of time leading up to its performance, and then changed back to Consequence? Was it a clerical error or was it a production decision?

Thanks, GB.

(REVENGE, CONSEQUENCE, and NIGHTMARE are all the same story?)

Consequence was presented twice, but the short story it was based on was titled Revenge.
Nightmare is a different story.

There is an AFRS version of this episode that is documented as existing. If anyone has a non-OTRR Suspense set, especially pre-2009 one, or reel or cassette, please check to see if the AFRS version is in there.

Then someone in PR screwed up - because the capsule descriptions above are the same!

Ah yes, in the Indianapolis paper! -- making a note in the post as well. Great catch! Smile

Also note that the plot of this is different from a (one-hour) performance of the same name done on March 13, 1948 with Eddie Bracken.

This is an interesting one -- the story as a concept was sold to a studio, with the writers contracted to produce a movie script. Along the way to creating that treatment, they turned their idea into a Suspense script. This is not another Suspense radio play that became a movie, because the script predated a sold movie treatment of the original idea. Or it would have... but it seems a movie was never made.

Magee Adams review of Motive for Murder; note the comparison to Dragnet,
early in its run, as the top notch detective program.
