James Robertson Justice,
Alison Crawford lives a comfortable life with her husband Eric and their two children. Alison is blind and she knows that her illness is not physical but psychosomatic. She had a fall at their second home and woke up unable to see. She has no recollection of losing consciousness or what may have happened immediately prior to that. Her vivacious younger sister Robin accompanies her to their country home where they are soon joined by Eric and a family friend, Paul. Eric and Robin had long ago had a fling but she was quite young at the time and he settled on the older Alison. As memories return to her, Alison recalls what is she saw the night she went blind.

I am amazed at these comments. I love Pat Neal, which is why I recorded this film, but I could not even get through it. The dialogue is cringe worthy, and the camera work, which I assume is meant to be artistic, is obnoxious. PN is great as usual, but all the characters around her seem like they are in a different movie. Sam Eggar has never impressed me with her acting ability and her super bitch femme fatale persona fell flat. Eric was wooden and the character was uninteresting; it is hard to imagine any woman would find him irresistible... The whole "feel" of the film made me wince. It reminded me of those bad movies from the fifties that tried so hard to be hip, and came out cheesy.
