Storyline

A man witnesses a murder in a secluded mansion. When he reports it, there's no evidence of the murder, or that anyone was there. He finds a key on the floor and goes to his boss to get help when he's struck from behind. He wakes up in a hospital room after a polo accident to find he's had amnesia for two years, is now married, and living in Switzerland. He still has the key and the memories of the murder. He goes back to England to try to resolve the mystery. Written by Ralph Cabrerar <rcabrera@juno.com>

Quotes

Richard Stuart: I've decided I don't like Tony Sutton - or his friends. Is that all he did? Go to parties and play polo?
Elizabeth Sutton: Well, he didn't have to do anything else, he was rich.
Richard Stuart: A rich playboy... polo, skiing in St. Maritz, cruising the Mediterranean with the jet set. What a life! A whole world coming apart at the seams, and all Tony Sutton can do is bounce about like a rubber ball.

The best thriller story I've seen in a movie
20 December 2004 | by DMx555See all my reviews

This really should be re-made today ! Its got a brilliant twist and keeps the audience guessing throughout. Louis Jordan is an excellent hero. Mary Tyler Moore is his , initially sceptic, companion. The polo match injury in hospital scene is one of those "OH yeah!" cinematic moments. I would love to see this movie released and will pay good money to get a copy. If anyone ever hears about how to get hold of a copy please contact me!!! Or simply put a review comment down here so that we can all get a copy ! I actually emailed the BBC to get this re-scheduled on TV and they said they would. Nowadays, Brad Pitt would play Louis Jordan's role and Julia Roberts could be the Mary Tyler Moor role. 10/10 Fantastic !
