I heard the actor, Robert Stack was doing an episode of Unsolved Mysteries on board the queen mary.

some of his assistants and himself were going up an escalator in the ship, when they turned and noticed a very pale ship maintenance worker, with a tool box standing behind them on the escalator, then he promptly disappeared, it was evidently the spookiest event to ever happen while filming the series.

Those are the places I'd like to go! Not to these lame a$$ haunted mansions and asylums that are filled with actors in costumes and make up!! I want the real deal.  It used to be that there was a Ghost Buster's tour that made the rounds of Chicago's most haunted places.  Try googling it!
