Mirage is a mystery film starring Gregory Pack and beautiful Diane Baker. The film’s action, twists and mystery is certainly not at par with best mysteries of the present day but it keeps you hooked for the first two third part. I could easily guess about the twists but kept watching till end. I feel the memory has always played the most mysterious agent in mystery films and Memento along with a few other classic mysteries are based on fallibility of human memory. I also think it was kind of trendy in that decade to use psychosomatic disorders to make intriguing thrillers!
The performances are good enough: there are only a few characters and story is pretty straightforward when looked back in the end. A person has lost all his memory of last two years and his amnesia comes at a time when many dangerous people are chasing him. He takes help from a professional detective but this detective along with his other associates are killed one by one and he keeps running from place to place. The film is in black and white so you can also watch it for nostalgia. Things are quite simple in it and you can also see how New York used to look in 1960s. I give this film 7 out of 10 as a mystery.
