Actual, documented cases of the supernatural, the paranormal, and the occult are dramatized in the first season of the half-hour anthology One Step Beyond. Included among the strange-but-true (or believed to be true) tales narrated by series director John Newland is the opening episode "The Bride Possessed," starring Virginia Leith (The Brain That Wouldn't Die) as a newlywed who has a strange feeling that she has already lived in the town where she is honeymooning. Subsequent installments include "The Dark Room," with Cloris Leachman as a photographer who is stalked by a man supposedly long dead; "The Vision," featuring Bonanza's Pernell Roberts as one of four French soldiers who vanish from the face of the earth after witnessing an unusual white light; "Night of April 14th," with The Avengers' Patrick Macnee in the story of a grotesque premonition involving a certain ill-fated ocean liner; "The Haunted U-Boat," with future Hogan's Heroes co-star Werner Klemperer as a escaped Nazi tortured by a mysterious and inexplicable pounding noise; and "Echo," in which a man who has been exonerated of a homicide charge (Ross Martin of The Wild, Wild West fame) sees himself committing the same murder over and over...in his own mirror. ~ Hal Erickson
