Any Second Now (1969)

Gene Levitt wrote and directed The Phantom of Hollywood as well as creating Fantasy Island. Here, he’s making a kinda sorta pre-Argento giallo in which Paul Dennison (Stewart Granger) tries to kill his wife Nancy (Lois Nettleton) but ends up giving her amenesia instead.

The problem? The amnesia she gets could go away at any time and then she’ll remember that he was cheating on her, that she was going to cut off his cash and that he set her up to die. But until then, he’s going to try and ride this out.

This isn’t a classic of the small screen. That said, it has some nice locations and moves along quickly. It’s innocuous and sometimes, you just need some old made for TV movies to get you through the day.
