|Plot||:||+ CBS net origination, AFRTS rebroadcast. "Tom Dooley". The story behind the Kingston Trio hit tune...a post-Civil War murder-for-love. The story was previously produced on "Suspense" on March 30, 1953. + During the last hundred years a lot of jilted young men must have killed a lot of fickle sweethearts in the great Smokey Mountains of the Carolinas but they remain anonymous since no one chose to write a song about them. Not so Tom Dooley. Thanks to the Kingston Trio’s record of an old folk tune (1958) poor Tom has become one of the most celebrated murderer’s of our day and therefore a fitting subject for Suspense.
