My Blood Runs Cold (1965)

Wealthy and reckless Californian Julie Merriday, accompanied by her attorney boyfriend Harry Lindsay, narrowly avoids crashing into a motorcycle ridden by young Ben Gunther.

Ben abandons his damaged cycle and accepts a ride from Julie but insists upon calling her Barbara.

Later, at the Merriday beach house, Julie’s Aunt Sarah tells Julie that her great great grandmother was named Barbara, and had given birth to an illegitimate child fathered by one Benjamin Gunther.

Despite her father’s protestations and Ben’s irrational conviction that she and he are reincarnations of the past lovers, Julie breaks off with Harry and elopes with Ben.

While aboard a small ketch which Ben claims he owns, Julie finds the earlier Benjamin’s diary, reads of his affair with her ancestor and realises that Ben lied.
