Baffled! (Philip Leacock, 1972)
« on: 20 Jul 2011 - 20:05 »

I watched this this evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a pilot for an intended series but unfortunately it didn't get made.



Who dares to walk the line between life and death?

Star Trek icon Leonard Nimoy, Susan Hampshire and Vera Miles star in this eerie story of revenge and murder from beyond the grave. Baffled, an intriguing ITC pilot for a never-completed series, is directed by Phillip Leacock and also stars Rachel Roberts, Christopher Benjamin, Angharad Rees and Ray Brooks.

Tom Kovak is a hard-nosed racing driver, until a sudden supernatural vision causes him to lose control of his car as he hurtles along at 140 miles per hour. Michele Brent is the woman who convinces Tom that his apparitions are significant. When she leads him to the manor house of his vision, he meets glamorous film star Andrea Glenn and her daughter, Jennifer, whose screaming image was the last thing he saw before his near-fatal crash. Despite Tom’s initial doubts, he is inextricably drawn into their lives, as together they combat a force that they cannot see, but can feel only too well. An ominous, vengeful presence engulfs the manor house. Its only aim is death, and its intended victim is Andrea; little Jennifer is its weapon. Tom must now find the means to tap into his powers. It is their only hope...


It's available as a web only exclusive from Network DVD, well worth the purchase.

Now I wonder if there was ever a 7" record of the theme tune?

I watched this last year and really enjoyed it too, largely thanks to Nimoy, who's always watchable.

Yup - very enjoyable. Susan Hampshire is as cute as a button in this. And great to see Nimoy get into a scrap with an old woman...

I saw this on TV years ago (I must have been around 12 at the time) and remember enjoying it too. That said, my only recollection is a high speed scene in which someone drives hell for leather down a country lane and narrowly misses a lorry.

Scorpion are releasing it with U.S. and U.K. versions. They announced on their facebook page that it's out end of January.

Anyone know what the differences are?

I'm afraid I'm baffled as to what the differences could be...

I watched the Network disc about a year ago. Wasn't as good a film as I remembered!  :-\
