The Man Who Haunted Himself 1970 ***

Roger Moore rarely made great claims for himself as an actor, but he managed to show some considerable skill in the quaintly creepy The Man Who Haunted Himself. Basil Dreaden directs from a short story by Anthony Armstrong, and mild mannered Harold Pelham (Moore) becomes aware of another version of himself after a near fatal car accident. Moore is such a confident player that’s its genuinely unsettling to see Pelham’s sense of reality troubled by the existence of a dopple-ganger, and the lack of a pat explanation only makes the film more haunting. Anton Rogers and Thorley Waters are amongst the support.
