Mirage (1965)

A New York City man suffers amnesia. He soon learns that he's mixed up in a life-and-death situation, but what exactly is it?

Hitchcock-inspired mystery of identity loss has a silly plot, but is superbly staged with uncanny sense for mise-en-scène.

Halliwell**: "Striking puzzler, rather slowly developed but generally effective and with a strong sense of place and timing."

Maltin***: "Fine Hitchcock-like thriller...Matthau steals film as easygoing private-eye; interesting on-location footage in N.Y.C."
