The Inner Sanctum Mysteries
featured stories of mystery, terror and suspense.  Each episode began with the show's eerie trademark, a squeaking door, followed by creepy organ music (supplied by Lew White) and a host who sardonically wise-cracked his way through the introduction.  Raymond Edward Johnson began as host, later replaced by Paul McGrath.

Many established stars played roles in the series, including Peter Lorre, Helen Hayes, Mary Astor, Frank Sinatra and Orson Welles.  The program ran from January 7, 1941 to October 5, 1952.
