Run a Crooked Mile (1969)

Richard Stuart (Louis Jordan), who teaches French at a London school, is involved in a hit-and-run accident and chases a Rolls Royce to a secluded mansion where he witnesses a group of men hatching a plot involving the world’s gold supplies and an argument in which a man is killed.

When he reports the event, there is no evidence of the murder, or indeed that anyone was at the mansion at all.

Stuart finds a key on the floor but is struck from behind and wakes up in a hospital after a polo accident to find he’s had amnesia for two years, is now married (and called Tony Sutton), and living in Switzerland.

This complicated, intriguing film from Universal was distributed straight to television.
