Run a Crooked Mile

Run a Crooked Mile is a made-for-TV thriller in which Louis Jourdan (in typically suave form) stars as Richard Stuart, an ordinary schoolteacher who, whilst on holiday, is a witness to a murder in a private secluded mansion.

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 is knocked unconscious. He wakes 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.
