Hauser's Memory Is A Timeless Television Science Fiction Classic

Hauser's Memory is a timeless made for television movie science fiction classic.In my opinion this is one of the finest made for television movies ever made. I love this movie.I first read the book authored by Curt Siodmak, and then I saw the movie.I have to say, I am a great lover of science fiction.I saw this movie originally when it aired for the first time on television.The movie production is not exactly like the book, but close enough.David McCallum was excellent in his portrayal as the scientist. The rest of the cast Susan Strasberg, Leslie Nielson, Helmut Kautner, and the great Lilli Palmer were excellent too. Considering that this was an early made for television movie the production was very very good.If you get a chance to see this rare gem you should.I have this movie on VHS tape.
