I Bury The Living (1958)

Robert Kraft (Richard Boone) is the newly appointed chairman of a committee that oversees a colossal cemetery. The cemetery is so large that a map is kept in the cemetery office displaying the grounds and each gravesite. Filled graves are marked by black pins and unoccupied but sold graves are marked with white pins. New to the position and unobservant, Kraft accidentally places a pair of black pins where they don’t belong, only to discover later that the young couple who had bought the gravesites in question died in an automobile accident soon afterwards. Under repeated tries, he finds that every time he places a black pin over an unoccupied grave, someone dies. Kraft slips into deep guilt and depression and believes he is cursed, while the cemetery caretaker (Theodore Bikel in a heavy Scots accent) knows more than he’s telling.

  1. Severe fault with this film ;after about 12 minutes it breaks into fits and starts (vision and sound) and is unwatchable. I’m pretty sure it’s not my download speed – could you check your feed please. Rog.

  2. I couldn’t replicate your error. Use Chrome or IE9 and clear your cache. Right click on the html5 player if you want to save out the movie.

    I am getting a disproportionate amount of complaints today. The internet might be being cranky in spots.

    The audio on this show was kinda low volume. I fixed that and uploaded a new copy just now…. so if it was a bad copy somehow… this one should do better.
