Sheila kills her husband at the start of the film with a smoking gun. We don't know how or why. All we know is men are banging on her door and she escapes. There is a notable dialogue as she makes her way to a New Years celebration with Richard Basehart as the poet William William. As she goes up the stairs to John Friday's apartment (her producer) she wishes she could relive the year and undo what she has done. William William, in an offhand remark, states he wishes he was the one who shot Barney, her erstwhile husband. We see that Destiny is not too happy with making changes to her plans. Written by
I saw this film years ago and have never forgotten it. (I share Mary's frustration in not being able to get it on video.) I still remember Richard Basehart being simply brilliant; and Louis Hayward playing the dreadful, faithless husband. Although it's been 30 years since I last saw "Repeat Performance," the compelling plot and the superb acting stay in my mind all these years later. A great film
