It's the beginning of the Labor Day weekend. Starfish automobile executive Daniel Corban, who is on his honeymoon with his wife of two weeks, Elizabeth Corban, at a lavish secluded lake-front house in the quaint summer resort community of Skuylkill, is frustrated. First, Elizabeth has not been seen in three days, and second, Skuylkill police inspector Murray Levine, who has a down home attitude matching the slow pace of the town, doesn't seem to be doing much about trying to find her despite Daniel's insistence that he do so. Levine does not see it as a police case since by Daniel's own admission she left on her own volition after the two of them had an argument. Levine has at least vowed that members of his detachment will look out for her and her missing vehicle. Daniel's frustration increases when a woman who claims to be Elizabeth, but is not, returns in what looks to be Elizabeth's car. He is unable to convince anyone, including Levine, that she isn't Elizabeth. And anyone in ... Written by

This is a well crafted mystery/suspense film based on Robert Thomas' play TRAP FOR A LONELY MAN. The cast is rock solid and the clever script will keep you guessing until the very end (unless you already know the final twist ahead of time).
Viewers who enjoyed this telemovie (or its inferior 1986 remake VANISHING ACT) should also track down the 1958 Michael Anderson movie CHASE A CROOKED SHADOW (starring Anne Baxter), which boasts a similar concept but with a slightly different premise (a woman is forcibly reunited with a man who claims to be her deceased brother, but only she seems to know that it's not really him).
