Movie Info

Basil Dearden's final film is a psychological thriller, adapted from an episode of the Alfred Hitchcock Presents television series. Roger Moore stars as wealthy business executive Harold Pelham, who becomes involved in a terrible car accident. While recovering from his injuries, his alter ego is unleashed and begins to live Pelham's life where he left off. When Pelham returns to his home and his job, he discovers his alter ego has not only undermined his business, but began an affair with a minor acquaintance and revitalized his previously unexciting sex life with his wife. This was Moore's final film before he took over the role of James Bond with Live and Let Die. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Man Who Haunted Himself

All Critics (3)

  • The Man Who Haunts Himself maintains interest throughout with its intriguing storyline, although the final moments avoid the perfect ending for one that's slightly less satisfying.

  • Everyone is British to the hilt, to the point where you may suspect (as do I) that Dearden is having a bit of fun at his countrymen's expense...

    Possibly Roger Moore's most atypical and best performance. The film has too little to offer besides Moore, it feels horribly dated (especially by the musical score) and stretched by its uninteresting subplots.

    a fine film for roger more, just before i think, he became james bond, after a crash, he gets fit again, and goes about his business, working for a leading london company, which are going undercsome espianage problems, who is the cause, but it turns out, he has been seen all ovev town, hanging out in snooker halls, doing business deals and so on, problem is he cant recall any of this, but everyone is convinced, he is who he is, what is happening to him, is there a double, going about town, doing things on his behalf, or is he going abit crazy, a very british stiff upper lip 60s setting adding to look, and roger moore comes off very well here, not a great acting talent as seen in bond, but, he he manages to bring you into his charactor, his confusion as to whats happening, is dealt well with, lighthearted also, msterious, and does keep you guessing to end, not action packed just a solid mystery throughout
