Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: [Opening Narration] You're looking at a tableau of reality, things of substance, of physical material: a desk, a window, a light. These things exist and have dimension. Now this is Arthur Curtis, age thirty-six, who also is real. He has flesh and blood, muscle and mind. But in just a moment we will see how thin a line separates that which we assume to be real with that manufactured inside of a mind.

Intriguing.
12 January 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Arthur Curtis (Howard Duff) is a businessman with a wife, a daughter. and a nice secretary...or is he who he thinks he is? Suddenly he sees a film director and crew in the office and the 'secretary' Sally (Gail Kobe- her first of three TZ) who is now an actress with her feet up on the desk calls him 'MR REGAN'. Then he finds everyone says he is Gerry Reagan, an actor who is only playing a character called Arthur Curtis.

An intriguing story as Howard Duff displays much torment as the conflicting identities character. The woman who claims to be his wife divorcing him, Nora Reagan (Eileen Ryan) could surely kill either 'character' with her stare. Miss Ryan's strong performance as the scary Norma seems to bring him to cold reality, but is this terrible shrew real? Duff is excellent as the woeful, confused 'businessman' or 'movie actor'.

All becomes clear...well at least I think it does!
