Biography by AllMovie

During the late '50s, John Newland was best known as a television as host of the fantasy series One Step Beyond, which specialized in dramas dealing with difficult-to-explain phenomenon involving telepathy, life after death, and other stuff of fantasy and speculation. He made his first feature film, That Night (1957) -- a daring, ahead-of-its-time story of a businessman's heart attack and its effect on his family -- during that same period. His second movie, The Violators (1957), attracted less attention, and since then Newland has worked largely in television-based material, including The Spy With My Face (1968), an above-average feature film adaptation of a Man From U.N.C.L.E. episode featuring Senta Berger with the usual cast of Robert Vaughn, David McCallum, and Leo G. Carroll, and TV movies such as A Sensitive Passionate Man (1977) and The Suicide's Wife (1979).
