      Bill T Not a bad little crime drama about a man who is picked up with amnesia and cant remember who he was previously. The doctor who treats him also helps him get a new life.. He becomes a brilliant psychologist, and then, a parole board chairman! Problem is of course, the hoodlums know exactly who he is, and they want the 200,000 back he stole from them in his previous life! The story moves along quite nicely, there may be a few clunks at the end (you're defending yourself in a racketeering trial? Really?) and there's a few odd "Rah America!" weird bits, but all in all, entertaining. No idea why there's like 5 sequels to this though. I guess we'll soon find out? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member While the movie is pretty lightweight, there's an intriguing idea for a TV series buried in here....
