See Paddy and Die!
15 April 2010 | by (brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

**SPOILERS** In London's East End Arena Trying to get himself ready for his bout with Alfie "Tiger" Jones American boxer Yank Dawson is worried about a story his manager Chipp White told him about the ghost that's been haunting that place for the last ten years Paddy Terhound. That's after Dawson's opponent's manager Sanderson burst into his dressing room with the story about Paddy, in order to psych Dawson out, that the severely brain damaged, from taking too many shot to the head, Dawson started having second thoughts about boxing Tiger Jones.

You see the story about Paddy Therhoun a boxer who died, from a blood clot, after participating in a bout in the East End Arena back in 1931 is that if anyone, boxer or spectator, sees him at the East End Arena before a boxing match they won't live the see the next sunrise. You can just imagine what Dawson felt when after waking up from his nap in his dressing room he sees in the flash, with his name sewed into his sweater, non other then Paddy Terhound looking right at him! With him now scheduled to fight Tiger Jones Dawson is far more afraid of the dead ghostly and invisible, to everyone but himself, Paddy Therhound then his flesh and blood opponent in the ring Tiger Jones!

***SPOILERS*** It's at the end of the bout that you realize what a strange quirk of fate Paddy pulled off among those he allowed himself to be seen by. Thinking at first Paddy was an actor that Sanderson hired, which in fact he did, to impersonate him in order to spook Dawson it soon becomes apparent to everyone that the person who was to impersonate Paddy was nowhere in sight when Dawson or anyone else saw him! He was in the police station charged with being dead drunk in public! So who did Dawson in fact see in his dressing room that night! And now if he did see the ghostly Paddy Therhound what's Dawson to expect to happen to him before the evening is over!

P.S Even though it's been considered by many to be a rip off of the far more famous "Twilight Zone" the series "One Step Beyond" premiered on TV a full six months earlier in February 1959. And overall was a far better program then the "Twilight Zone" in its 97 episodes about the mysterious unexplained and the unknown.
