Storyline

David Gurney awakens on his bed fully clothed and realizes he's late for work. He and his wife Wilma had a few drinks the night before and she is sound asleep. When he can't find his razor he wakes her but she says he doesn't know who he is and demands he leave her house. His clothes are nowhere to be found and so heads off to work. He knows everyone there but like his wife, none of his co-workers have any idea who he is. He's desperate to find one piece of his identity to prove who he is. When all finally seems resolved, he faces another shock. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Dave finds his proof, the photo clerk tells him that he owes $1.75. A moment later though, Dave tells the policemen he owes her $1.81. With tax, it would have been $1.81. (California sales tax was 3% at the time.) See more »

Be Careful How Much You Drink!
4 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another guy put into an untenable position. He wakes up and his wife and all his usual acquaintances don't have a clue who he is. He does what most people would do. He thinks everyone else is crazy. He goes from place to place, eventually being taken in by a guard who he has known for four years. Eventually, of course, he's put in a psyche ward and is being analyzed by a doctor there. Serling does a good job using Richard Long as the suffering man who doesn't know which way to turn. He finally makes his way home and we think there is a conclusion to his pain. This one has a great ending, so wait for it. Longs frustrations and facial expressions work very well. He was pretty much all over the place during the fifties and sixties, including that Western with Barbra Stanwyck.
