Edward Volner (James Garner) has a recurring nightmare that recalls three stages of his marriage. In his dream he is an amnesiac who has several unlikely allies in his search for who he is. Angela Landsbury and Jack Gilford portray unlikely benefactors as well as a group of Washington Square denizens who save him from a beat cop. Katherine Ross, Suzanne Pleshette, and Jeanne Simmons portray his wife during three stages of his marriage. The film depicts social issues of the first half of the 1960's including birth control, abortion, and police corruption. The film is surreal, James Garner claims in his biography that it was the worst film of his career. I believe it is one of his best films, its dark character study is definitely not your typical James Garner movie. Pay close attention to the opening shot and the closing shot especially the final few seconds.
