How Do You Know Me?
14 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Patrick O'Neal stars as Mitchell Campion, an American visiting a small island near Spain after recovering from a near-fatal accident. Upon arrival at his hotel, he is at first amused, then annoyed by the reactions of the staff and locals who insist that he had been there before, and even had a romance with a native woman, but the inexplicable thing is that Mitchell has no memory of this at all, and indeed can prove he was in the hospital at the time he was supposedly on the island! How can this be? Intriguing episode has a fine performance by O'Neal and a nice island atmosphere as it tackles the theme of astral projection.
