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

Trivia

Director Edward Dmytryk originally wanted to cast Tippi Hedren in the part of Shela, but Hedren was under a personal contract with Alfred Hitchcock who told Dmytryk she was not available. Diane Baker, who had played opposite Hedren in Hitchcock's Marnie (1964), took over the role. See more »

Marvellous Mirage!
27 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

Gripping thriller from start to finish, deserving top marks all around. A man has lost his memory and the story progressively unravels the truth as to who he is and what happened. Well done to Cinemax for providing this wonderful drama as quite simply most of the movies on many of the cable channels are barely worthy of a few minutes before switching off.But not this one; there is a star-studded cast of excellent professional actors and as I missed the opening credits I assumed (until I learnt from here) that this was not a Hitchcock picture, though very much in his style.The ambience, script, camera work and direction are all first rate and why cannot current film makers learn from Mirage how to make a decent drama!? What I especially like is that there are no unnecessary sub-plots, simply a full throttle dramatic play, concentrating on one compelling story line. 10 out of 10.
