This week we’ll hear a radio version of the 1944 film The Uninvited, which was based on the novel Uneasy Freehold by Dorothy MacArdle published in 1942. This version comes from the Screen Director’s Playhouse, and first aired November 18, 1949.
The original file, TheHorror268 had a corrupted version of the episode. Make sure you download file TheHorror268a (offered here now) for the repaired version.
Matthew asked to hear an episode from The Hermit’s Cave, one we haven’t heard for a long time here on The Horror, titled House With A Past. I don’t have an air date for this episode, but it’s safe to say it was heard sometime in the 1940’s.

Karl wrote in asking for some Bela Lugosi so, though it isn’t exactly horror, we’ll hear an episode from Suspense starring Bela today. The Doctor Prescribed Death first aired February 2, 1943. Thanks for the suggestion Karl.
