Doppelganger (1969) A planet is discovered in the same orbit as Earth's but is located on the exact opposite side of the sun, making it not visible from Earth. The European Space Exploration Council decide to send American astronaut Glenn Ross and British scientist John Kane via spaceship to explore the other planet. After a disastrous crash-landing Ross awakes to learn that Kane lies near death and that they apparently have returned to Earth, as evidenced by the presence of the Council director and his staff. Released to the custody of his wife, he soon learns things are not as they seem.

Movie Quote(s):
  • David Poulson: Does our side have anything like this? Mark Neuman: We do now.
  • Jason Webb: When are you going to nail him? Mark Neuman: That depends on how much rope we give him, Jason Webb: Lisa! This access restriction, it must be widened. Lisa Hartmann: To whom? Jason Webb: Hassler, Doctor Hassler! Mark Neuman: You're serving up information on a plate. To our prime suspect. Jason Webb: That's my responsibility. Your responsibility is this! IF he shows his hand, I don't want an arrest. Understood? Mark Neuman: Understood.
  • Jason Webb: You are going to sit there and watch me take a man for one billion dollars. John Kane: The words of an egotistical megalomaniac. Jason Webb: Remind me to be as charitable to you when one of your rockets blows up on the pad.
  • Glenn Ross: You know when a rocket is ready, but you don't know when a man is ready, Kane isn't. Jason Webb: I know more about human nature than anyone else here at EuroSEC. That's why I am in this office.
  • John Kane: I could grow attached to those. Dr. Pontini: That's the idea. Now you can be hooked up to the heart, lung, and kidney machine during flight. With sedation, you'll sleep, three weeks there, and three weeks back. John Kane: That part I'm looking forward to.
Movie Trivia:
  • Lynn Loring, real-life wife of Roy Thinnes replaced Tisha Sterling, who had to withdraw because of illness.
  • Ed Bishop replaced Peter Dyneley, after rushes revealed the latter's physical similarity to Patrick Wymark, which was thought likely to confuse audiences.
  • The Phoenix spacecraft's power reactor is depicted as having been manufactured by Rolls Royce.
  • Patrick Wymark's character complains of heart trouble early in the film. Ironically, Wymark really did have a bad heart and died the following year.
