The married owner of a bookstore is attracted to his sexy blonde clerk. He finally gives in to temptation and makes a pass at her, but that only results in him getting enmeshed in blackmail and murder.
Bill and Robin, helped by their childhood friend, Lena, develop a "reproducer" which can exactly duplicate any object. Bill, crushed when Lena marries Robin, convinces her to allow him to duplicate her, so that he may have a copy of her for himself. The experiment, at first deemed a success, seems to have worked only too well as the duplicate, Helen, is such an exact copy that she also loves Robin, not Bill. Bill hopes to rectify the situation with another radical experiment. Written by

Four Sided Triangle was one of the first science fiction movies from Hammer. Another early one was Spaceways, made around the same time as this.
Two mad scientists and a woman make a machine that can make copies of anything and when one of them marries the woman, he decides to make a copy of her as he is in love with her too. He succeeds but the problem is, her copy isn't so keen on him. At the end, the barn where their lab is burns down leaving one of the women alive. But which one?
This is rather interesting stuff from Hammer and is a good early attempt by them at sci-fi. Bigger things followed though...
The cast includes Barbara Payton (Bride of the Gorilla), James Hayter (Tom Brown's Schooldays), Stephen Murray and John Van Eyssen.
This movie is worth seeing. Excellent.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
