Of the handful of One Step Beyond episodes I've seen so far, this is one that defies credibility the most, in as much as series host John Newland claims that they represent real events that have occurred. Others before me here have detailed the events of the story, however no one mentioned the fact that at the time Mario Patruzzio attempted his solo trapeze jump and was 'saved' by the grasp of his hospitalized father, a nurse at the father's bedside claimed that he reached with outstretched arms in a gesture of 'catching' his son. At the time he was paralyzed and remained so after being examined thoroughly following the nurse's report. Newland offers the theory of 'bilocation' as a possible explanation for the apparent miracle. There have been other credible reports of bilocation but I don't know enough about the phenomenon to offer an opinion.

Fans of the TV show 'Mannix' will be pleased and perhaps surprised to see Mike Connors here as the guilt ridden son Mario. Sultry Yvette Vickers portrays Mario's philandering wife Carlotta, who by the time the story is over beats a hasty exit out of the aerialist's life. Besides the puzzler over the miracle catch, the other mystery for me involved Mario's brother Paul (Ruggero Romor). How did this man with blonde hair wind up in an Italian family like the Patruzzio's?
