What's Behind the Wall?





(No, this time it's not a mummified cat. It's even more bizarre.)

Remember the forgotten tunnel that was discovered underneath Brooklyn? (If not, you really should click here.) Well, there may soon be a movie about it. The film's producer is trying to raise money to complete the project--and to fund an excavation. He hopes to prove that a section of the tunnel still hidden behind a wall, "contains hidden international mysteries about John Wilkes Booth, the assasination of Abraham Lincoln, the missing pages of Booth's diary that list the conspirators involved in Lincoln's death, and a perfectly preserved locomotive from the early 1800's."

Hey--stranger things have happened.

Watch the film's trailer here. And see a CNN interview with the men behind the film here.

I actually saw a history channel thing about this (the tunnel, not the movie). On the same episode was a bar that had been around during prohibition, and you'd be surprised how much effort they put into hiding their booze. I don't remember what it was called, but its intact and in Manhattan.

The claims that they have of all those particular treasures that they believe are back there leads me to ask how they can assume things that specific?
