Goofs

In the opening scene, Tom Kovack's helmet is flecked with mud spots that change places in different shots. This makes his name appear misspelled as "KCVACK" during the racing scene close ups, but correct as "KOVACK" during the pit stop and ending crash with the hay-wagon. See more »

Quotes

Michele Brent: [trying to climb out of elevator shaft] Is there anything to hold on to?

Mr. Spock meets Lila Crane
15 June 2017 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

The oddball "Baffled!" got intended as a pilot for a TV show but never got picked up. I don't know whether or not the story would've worked as a series, but as a standalone movie it's fun. Leonard Nimoy (in a role very unlike his most famous one) plays a racecar driver who has strange visions of an estate and decides to find out what it is. Sure enough, some other people have a connection to this place.

It's not a masterpiece but still a clever movie. A red herring here and there help keep the end a surprise. It looks like the sort of movie that they had fun filming. Moreover, it was neat to see Nimoy in a role so unlike the one with which he's most associated. And I also liked Vera Miles's role.
