Everything in this room could tell a hundred stories, but this boxing glove was involved in a most unusual occurrence when on September 17, 1944 that dark and heavy curtain to the world beyond our five senses - the psychic world - was lifted for a moment.

Future action superstar Charles Bronson makes an early TV appearance as a professional boxer named Yank Dawson, who, in 1944 London, is preparing for a major bout with a rival boxer, but is distracted by an old superstition that if you see a long deceased boxer named Paddy you will die soon, as it is an omen of death for some reason. His manager scoffs at such tales, but Yank isn't so sure, and when he catches a glimpse of Paddy in person, becomes quite worried, threatening to cost him not only the fight, but perhaps his life... Bronson is good here, and his distinct presence is obvious, with the twist at the end coming as an abrupt surprise.
