Run a Crooked Mile

1969 : Run a Crooked Mile
Starring Louis Jourdan, Mary Tyler Moore & Wilfrid Hyde-White

Le Complot du Silence(Fr)
Louis Jourdan dans le rôle de Richard Stuart.

Run a Crooked Mile is a made-for-TV thriller in which Louis Jourdan stars as Richard Stuart, an ordinary schoolteacher who, whilst on holiday, is a witness to a murder in a private secluded mansion. Louis Jourdan, Mary Tyler Moore, and Wilfrid Hyde-White head a wonderful cast in this 1969 made-for-television film; running time is approximately 93 minutes.

Synopsis: Richard Stuart, a mathematics teacher in a boys' school in London, is on his way back from a meeting with the head master when a large car sideswipes his car. He follows the car, notes the plate. When he reports this however, no evidence of any murder can be found, only a key on the floor. When he tries to investigate further he gets hit on the head and wakes up two years later -- in Geneva, Switzerland with a wife & no memory of those two years.

He has woken up in a hospital room (after an apparent polo accident) and is astounded to discover that two years have elapsed during which he has been unhappily married to a beautiful woman (Mary Tyler Moore) and living a rich and extravagant life in Europe under the name Tony Sutton. Not only this, he has become mixed up in a plot to damage the whole European economy.

Acclaimed for its original premise, stylish photography (by Arthur Grant) and use of exotic locations, the film has managed to develop a cult following. However, it seems to have been somewhat overlooked lately and has now disappeared from TV schedules. To date it has not been released on video or DVD.
