Sleep No More - a show from around 1956/1957
« on: November 14, 2012, 08:07:38 AM »
Just heard an awesome story from a series entitled "Sleep No More".  The story was called The Escape of Mr. Trim.  Just stumbled upon this story and it was riveting.  Mr. Trim is what is now known as a White Collar Criminal and is in a train off to jail when it derails.  Authorities believe him to be dead....howeeevvvverrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..................  Anyone know of this story?  Its pretty good!

Never heard of it but it sounds like something I could get into. I'll google.

It was on live365.com - station entitled Crypt Theater.  Very good station to catch some weird stuff on but it fills up quickly.  If I catch it early enough in the day I can get in since I don't have a VIP membership.  Hopefully you can find it somewhere else!

This sounds so much like a story Jim aired with Vincent Price.  I can't think of the episode name or series name, but Price was a criminal being taken to jail when it derails.  However you start figuring out that he was framed & the people "killed" are still alive.  So, he's free to really kill them, right??  :)

If I can find it, I'll let y'all know.

Yeah, I swear I heard this episode just a few months ago, though it may have been lingering on my playlist for a while.

That's "Present Tense," done on both Suspense and Escape.  It's still up on the website here:

I'll play the Sleep No More episode on the next Relic Radio Show.  Thanks for the suggestion, angelad.

Ah, yes - we listened to this one with the kids during a long road trip. A great little tale.

Thanks, Jim!   :D

See??  I knew we kept Jim around for a reason!  ;D

Thanks for the link, Jim!  The title rang a bell immediately.  Think I got that one at home.

"Present Tense" was  a great episode and it reminded me a bit of the Ambrose Bierce story "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge." If you like that show you should give the story a read, or perhaps check out the short film of it that aired as an episode of the Twilight Zone as well. Anyway, I shall be on the look out for "Sleep No More."
