Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Made for television, Run a Crooked Mile is an kaleidoscopic espionager filmed in Britain. Louis Jourdan plays a schoolteacher on holiday who is injured in an serious auto accident. When he awakens, Jourdan discovers that two years have elapsed, during which time he has lived the life of a wealthy wastrel. He also learns that his alter ego has become mixed up in a plot to undermine the economy of Europe. Run a Crooked Mile is distinguished by imaginative photography, and by offbeat performance of leading lady Mary Tyler Moore, whose allegiances and honesty are in doubt until the final scenes.
