526 Episodes beginning with the eerie creaking door!

Inner Sanctum Mysteries was a long-running anthology series broadcasting shows of mystery, horror and suspense .  Over a total of 526 episodes, Raymond Edward Johnson would introduce himself after the telltale sound of a creaking door.  This creaking door effect would penetrate the collective psyche of America and go on to be used as a staple for radio and TV shows for years to come.

Inner Sanctum Mysteries blended campy horror with sardonic comedy, a running theme which transitioned well when the show became sponsored by Lipton teas.  Mary Bennett did the spots for Lipton tea, and the sunny , cheerful spots evoked quite a contrast from the program's content.

Many later stars would appear in the roster of actors for the series, some that you might expect, like Peter Lorre or Boris Karloff, and others you might not, such as Burgess Meredith and Frank SinatraInner Sanctum Mysteries made the transfer to television in 1954.  Himan Brown also resurrected the show in the 1970s as CBS Radio Mystery Series.
