Synopsis


36 Hours
In 1950, Maj. Jefferson Pike (James Garner), an Army intelligence agent who served with distinction in World War II, awakens in a hospital with severe amnesia. He isn't sure where he is, how he got there, or even who the woman at his side is, even though the doctor tells him that her name is Anna (Eva Marie Saint) and that she is his wife. The doctor instructs Pike to recall, in as much detail as possible, what he was doing before the accident that caused his traumatic memory loss. But the doctor isn't a doctor, Anna isn't Pike's wife, it isn't 1950, and he isn't in an American hospital. World War II is still very much in progress, and Pike is being duped in an elaborate scheme prepared by Maj. Walter Gerber (Rod Taylor), a German intelligence agent. Gerber is trying to trick a drugged and suggestible Pike into telling him everything he knows, as the injured soldier lies in a Bavarian military hospital after being taken prisoner. Will Pike be able to see through the cracks in Gerber's facade before he spills the beans that could mean death and defeat for American soldiers? 36 Hours was later remade for TV under the title Breaking Point. TV fans will want to keep an eye peeled for bit parts by James Doohan from Star Trek and John Banner from Hogan's Heroes. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Great Movie!

    I was mesmerized by this movie. I suppose the reason was because there were so many people (an entire hospital!) trying to pull the wool over this guy's eyes, and at first, they were 100% successful! Another thing that made this movie interesting is that the entire movie could actually, quite easily, happen. I just loved the entire plot and I will enjoy this movie for years to come. I saw this movie once when I was 14, and have always wanted to see it again. However, I only remembered the plot, not the name of the movie. I also remembered James Garner as a main actor, and I searched extensively many years for this movie. Oh, I am now 59. Needless to say, this movie made quite an impression on my young mind, and I have never forgotten the plot. I'm just thankful "us" good guys won in the end!

    I love old WW2 movies, and this one is no exception. This is not played out on the battlefield but in a hospital. Grab your popcorn.
