One Step Beyond – “Night Of April 14th” – FULL EPISODE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ixVw9UWQxo

One step beyond was a TV series in late 1950s similar to the twilight zone but with a difference. The episodes were of true paranormal stories. I’m not sure how much was drama and how much is true facts. But I am a believer in the paranormal. This episode always gave me chills! For those skeptics just watch to the end and the book that the host picks up. That is a real book. Freaky.

Titanic stories always fascinated me. The event was so tragic I can see how the events of this show could be true!

everyone  knows  youtube is great fun when looking for some fun short videos to watch for some escapism! even watching music videos! but im shocked to find out some ppl dont realize youtube has classic films  and tv shows on there! some in parts, and others in full!

well over time i added some films in a playlist called: Classic Films (catchy huh LMAO).  heres my classic films playlist: MY YOUTUBE CLASSIC FILM LIST

most on that list are films either in parts or uploaded full. but i have just a few stuff in there not films, but related to classic films,  like : Whatever Happened to Baby Jane music video, a trailer, bette davis eyes video.

but most stuff i have on there are films in their entirety, or parts.

u will see alot of classic horror stuff mainly &  also silent gems! some comedy stuff too.   below is my list as of right now:

yea theres alot of B-movies on it. but i like b-movies!

from just pictures projected on a wall, to moving film shots, experimental cinema, to films that told a story……to watch films from their birth is so interesting to watch and it takes you back in a time long gone. where everything was so new and exciting! and its so great that tcm will be showing us from the beginning how it all began!
