One Step Beyond - the Open Window

I posted an episode of my Dr. Gangrene Presents online recently - some of those old ONE STEP BEYONDepisode were pretty good. they tended to lean toward supposed real-life supernatural events, rather than the more Sci-fi and fantastical stories in The Twilight Zone. It was an interesting series, and I hosted a number of them on my DR. GANGRENE PRESENTS series, as they are in the public domain. This one is called THE OPEN WINDOW, and is more than a little reminiscent of Hitchcock's REAR WINDOW
