Jane Brown (Stefanie Powers) is found dead in her hotel room, gas poisoning, possible suicide - but she's rushed to the clinic of Dr Denholt (Alec MacNaughton), who does the impossible and revives her. Thing is, she has to now stay at the clinic for all her life because she needs a shot every day to stay alive. And the other thing is, she has completely lost her memory and is now on the intellectual level of a pre-school child. So Dr Denholt gets psychologist Paul (David Buck) to ... well, re-teach her (and probably find out who she actually is). Paul's good at stimulating her intellect, but his efforts to make her regain her memory lead to naught. One day he decides to take her out (she's never been away from the clinic since her "rebirth") - but she gets away from him and tries to gas herself again. Dr Denholt subsequently decides to not let Paul see her again - somewhat sensible decision too, right?

Thing is, Paul has fallen in love with her, and being not allowed to see her no more, he decides to check on her background - and before long finds out who she is and where she has lived ... and that she had a lover (Clive Graham) she wanted to run away with - but when he confronts Jane with all of this, she starts to remember ... that she accidently killed that lover and then wanted to kill herself. And now, the memory kills her for real ...

 

This could have been an interesting story, but unfortunately, it's rather poor in execution: Basically, all suspense moments seem to have been sucked out of the plot and filled up with some pseudo-scientific mumbo-jumbo (why was it so important narratively that she was raised from the dead instead of making her a regular amnesiac?), plus the story's resolution is rather poor and seems a bit lazy, too.

In all, not a total disaster, but pretty much a missed chance.
