Storyline

Walking down twenty-seven flights of stairs after the power goes out in the New York City office building he is in, David Stillwell emerges outside on the ground level to find that a man he didn't know either jumped or was pushed out a window to his death. That man was Charles Calvin, the head of Unidyne, a humanitarian organization that works toward world peace. David notices other unusual goings-on. What he considers his normal routine that others he knows should recognize, don't. People that he doesn't know seem to know him, such as the beautiful young woman with who he walked down the stairs but who ran off when they got to the bottom. And things that he thought he saw or thought he knew end up not being the case, such as the multiple sub-basement levels he thought were in that office building which don't seem to exist in the clear light of day. When he finally thinks about it, he believes he has some form of amnesia. As an example, he knows that he works as a cost accountant, but... Written by Huggo

Brilliant Masterpiece
1 October 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie several times and always enjoyed it. Not only are the actors outstanding, the whole movie is just perfect. Dmytryk did a great job and the atmosphere is fascinating, no wonder since it is filmed in black and white. I couldn't imagine it in color! The story is very puzzling at first and you are trying to find out what really happened just like the protagonist. But with every minute you are coming closer to the solution in a very enchaining way. The big showdown at the end is worth watching several times. Peck, Matthau, McCarthy and the rest did a very good job and made this picture a very enjoyable and interesting experience. It is one of my all-time favorites.
