John Wingate interviews British stage actor Kenneth Haigh, now appearing in the Broadway play, "Look Back in Anger"

furniture seemingly moving around by itself.

Trivia: Seventeen years before The Lutz family moved into a house in Amityville, Long Island, and began reporting events
that inspired the Amityville Horror book and movie franchise, another family living just six miles away in the town of
Seaford played host to a poltergeist called "Popper". Their experiences earned them the dubious distinction of becoming
the first haunting documented on American television.
On October 29, 1958, CBS aired a special entitled “The House of Flying Objects” as part of its Armstrong Circle Theatre program,
including dramatic recreations of Popper’s antics, along with interviews with the Herrmann family and Dr. Pratt. After that,
Popper faded from public view, to be replaced 17 years later by a house a few towns over in Amityville.
