HOW CAN A MAN AVENGE HIS OWN MURDER?  (taglines)

John Ellman[edit]

  • But you can't kill me for something I didn't do! You can't!
  • He'll believe me.
  • Why did you have me killed?

Dialogue[edit]

Jimmy: Imagine... Dr. Beaumont keeping this heart pumping for over twenty years!
Nancy: Wish he could do something about making your heart pump!

Dr. Evan Beaumont: All I know is that for a short time the spirit of life left his body. Now, what happened during that transition? What effect did the experience of death have on his subconscious mind. Can he remember?
District Attorney Werner: Well, it's rather a large order, doctor, and I'm afraid a bit beyond the province of law...
Dr. Evan Beaumont: ...and beyond the province of science too, but it's a challenge, and somewhere, I think, we'll find the key to all this.
District Attorney Werner: If you do, I hope you'll let me know.
