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
During pre-production, one of the producers was set to meet with Quincy Jones, but he didn't know Jones was black. The producer saw Jones for the first time and told him, "I'll be right back," and the producer left with the intention of bringing in a non-black composer for the film. Shortly after, Henry Mancini, a longtime personal friend of Jones, recommended him to the producer, thereby ensuring Jones getting hired to score the film. See more »

I feel this is a very thrilling movie to watch, I have not watch it for a few years but I am getting a copy of it and am looking forward to seeing it again. I do not no why the movie has not been shown more,it is not listed on the credits of Gregory Peck, George Kennedy or Diane Backer the main stars of the picture. It is a very hard picture to find, recommend it highly to everyone who likes good films! George Kennedy is his usual self doing a great job of acting, and I feel it is one of Gregory Peck finest films. It has a great plot and it keeps you on the edge for almost the whole picture. I have been trying to find this picture for a lot of years, I am glad I have found it again!
