Finally! The very first adaptation of a Woolrich suspense novel returns to the big screen in a brand new 35mm print! A man loses his memory after being struck by a falling beam; as he struggles to piece his life together he realizes he’s lived the preceding year as another person! Is it all a tortured twist of fate—or a sinister, calculated plot? Burgess Meredith stars as the beleaguered amnesia victim, with noir stalwart Claire Trevor providing support—or is she?

Special thanks to Universal Pictures for this new 35mm preservation print. NOT ON DVD!
