Suddenly, he has a vision of a strange, disheveled woman, who warns him that his wife and son are in grave danger. Can it be that this is merely a drunkard's hallucination--or are Helen and Steve about to meet with tragedy? This episode features several sci-fi/fantasy movie veterans, including Julie Adams (Creature from the Black Lagoon), Charles Herbert (13 Ghost) and William Schallert (The Man from Planet X). ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide One Step Beyond: The Night of April 14th No synopsis available. One Step Beyond: The Riddle Travelling through India on the Bombay Express, Leonard Barrett (Warren Stevens), a man without an enemy in the world, is suddenly consumed with hatred. The object of Barrett's vitriol is another passenger, a seemingly harmless old peddler named Kumar (Patrick Westwood) who enters Barrett's compartment, carrying a rooster. Inevitably, a murder occurs--but who is the real victim? This is the final episode of One Step Beyond's first season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide One Step Beyond: The Dream Britain, 1940: In the early stages of the Dunkirk evacuation, exhausted Homeguardsman Herbert Blakely (Reginald Owen) falls asleep at his post--and has a dream in which his estranged wife Ethel (Molly Raden) is killed. At the same time, miles and miles away, Ethel has a similar dream, in which Herbert meets his doom. Despite the chaos all around them, Herbert and Ethel are determined to reach one another before their dreams become a horrible reality. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide aOne Step Beyond: The Dark Room In one of the series' eeriest episodes, American photographer Rita Wallace (Cloris Leachman) sets up shop in Paris, hoping to capture the "soul of France" in her pictures. Advertising for a model, Rita ends up using a strange, reclusive little man (Marcel Dalio) with a haunted look in his eyes. Not long afterward, A few nights later, Rita is attacked and nearly strangled to death by a mysterious intruder--and only after she carefully scrutinizes her recent photographs does she even begin to grasp the significance of this inexplicable assault. If "The Dark Room" seems to have a Hitchcock flavor, it may be because the episode was written by "Hitch"'s frequent collaborator Francis Cockrell. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide One Step Beyond: The Navigator On a ship sailing through the China Seas, First Mate Walter Blake (Don Dubbins) follows directions written on the captain's blackboard and changes course. Angrily, the captain (Robert Ellenstein) confronts Blake, insisting that he had never written such instructions. It turns out that the course was changed at the behest of a mysterious stowaway (Olan Soule)--who is completely unable to explain his actions. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide One Step Beyond: The Secret Left home alone on
