Mirage (1965)

Universal Pictures
Directed by Edward Dmytryk
My rating: 3 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(DVD, Universal)

Accountant Gregory Peck realizes he has amnesia, which started during a blackout while in a NYC skyscraper. A woman acts like he knows her, but he doesn't recognize her. A man follows him a tries to shoot him. He goes to the police, but when he can't remember his date of birth he leaves. A psychiatrist kicks him out of his office. Only down-and-out detective Walter Matthau is willing to help him and together they begin to piece together parts of the puzzle. When his memory finally returns, he finds himself in the middle of a life or death situation. Fun, intriguing, Hitchcock-inspired thriller, even if it does get confusing at times. Good NYC location shooting by Joseph MacDonald.
