This seminal effort from Australian filmmaker John Duigan stars Peter Cummins in the title role. Not much is known about the firm for which businessman Gerald Baxter (Cummins) works, but it seems to have a negative effect on everyone involved. The hero begins to experience bizarre visions, while his wife (Eileen Chapman) commences an affair with a friend of the family. In addition to directing, Duigan also produced and scripted. His "official" film debut, The Trespassers, was still a year or so in the future.
