I sought this film for quite a long time. Finally, I own a copy and have watched it twice. It was worth the wait.
Peter Sterling (the incomparable Louis Jourdan) and his wife Christine (Angela Punch McGregor) are bored with the state of their lives, particularly with one another. Christine is especially bored and longs for adventure and excitement. After all, Peter is a butterfly collector, and Christine feels like one of his pretty possessions.
Excitement comes in the form on a stranger, a nameless young man (Warwick Comber). Christine gets adventure and excitement, all right--and much more. The ending provides a twist that is brilliant and unexpected.
Brian Kavanagh wrote and directed this film, and his craft is evident. Kavanagh is a published novelist, so his ability to create intriguing, thrilling, engaging, and entertaining stories and characters is well known.
If you can locate a copy of "Double Dare," by all means grab it. You will not be disappointed.
