Suspicion (suspense anthology, from Alfred Hitchcock)

    (NBC Primetime, 1957 - 1959;

    [The series was another production distributed by MCA-Revue
     Studios from Alfred Hitchock's Shamley Productions, which 
     produced "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" which aired on CBS and
     "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" on NBC. Unfortunately, Mr. Hitchcock
     didn't get as involved in this series, and it suffered from
     his lack of personal touch. It started out as a live series,
     but later episodes were made on film (Revue Studios' specialty.)

     The first host was Dennis O'Keefe who was replaced in the
     final season by Walter Abel]

Theme 2: "Suspicion"

    [In the 1978 ASCAP Index of Performed Compositions, the
     composition is listed without a writer, just the publisher;
     but in the most recent database, Jeff Alexander is listed
     without publisher; The piece is listed in copyright records
     attributed to Jeff Alexander only. However, the Internet
     Movie database does not mention Alexander in conjunction 
     with the series, so this might be for cues or for another
     series' cues.]
