Movie Info

A dazed man, David Stillwell (Gregory Peck), wanders down the stairs of a New York skyscraper during a power blackout, only vaguely aware of who he is, where he's been, and why he has this nagging feeling that danger lurks all about him. Stillwell does know that many of the people in the building are acquainted with him -- and that he is somehow linked with the death of wealthy philanthropist Charles Calvin (Walter Abel), who has fallen 27 floors to his death (a special effect that was

Kovacevic's bloody coming of age takes him so far out of character that he's unrecognizable in the end.

Audience Reviews for Mirage

A solid B-list thriller, with a great score by Quincy Jones, a typically wooden but effective performance from Gregory Peck, and a wonderful turn by Walter Matthau as a low rent private dick.

"mirage" is the amnesia-inspired suspense thriller upon the political theory of conspiracy. later on the 1968 "jigsaw" would another follower. this time our forgetful hero(or anti-hero) would be the serious-looking gregory peck.

peck is a wondering wanderer who suddenly is striken with the conscious that he has no clue about what he has done in these two years, and he only senses that someone is chasing behind him for something from him which he has no idea about. then to discover the truth of the matters, he seeks help from a detective(walter matthau) who runs a office called "aaa" just becuz of its convenience to be listed as the first capital name on advertisement. then he encounters his alledged former love interest who attempts to persuade him into dropping off the quest of his identity....little by little, peck recovers from the mental shock effect which would cause him compulsively to blank out his memories that he accidentally induces the death of some peace activist who turns into philistine bussinessman whom he reveres deeply.

this flick has the simulated aura of the 2000s "momento" which is based on another more complicated mental disease "short-term repeated memories" which is comically applied also in drew barrymore's "50 first dates"...."mirage" is a quaint piece which might be the pioneer to inspire the consequent flicks on the theme of amnesia.....but be relieved, this flick is better than peck's 40s collaboration with hitchcock "spellbound" lacks the melodramaticity of "spellbound", and it's surrounded with the nihilistic atmosphere of existentialism in kafka's novellas, but it would probably be better if the lead was played by someone who emits more flexible frailty and dubious ambituity than the straight-faced gregory peck who is literarily the typecasting of hero on the side of justice.
