Though not readily apparent by its title, The Four-Sided Triangle belongs in the realm of science fiction/fantasy. Barbara Payton stars as Lena, a British girl raised in America who returns to her hometown on a sentimental journey. Here she is reunited with her childhood friend Bill (Stephen Murray), now a scientist. With the help of his pal Robin (John Van Eyssen), Bill has developed a duplicating machine (today it'd be called a cloning device). When Robin and Lena fall in love, the heartbroken Bill decides to create a duplicate Lena, whom he names Helen. Unfortunately, since Helen is an exact copy of Lena, the clone falls in love with Robin as well. A climactic fire claims the life of one of the two Lenas--but which one? Director Terence Fisher co-adapted the screenplay from a novel by William F. Temple. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Whoever wrote the synopsis is a jerk!

I haven't even seen the movie and I already know that it's going to be one of those "Did the clone die, or did the real one die? And what constitutes being real? What do you, the viewers at home think?" movies.

I've wanted to see this movie for years and now when I finally do, my enjoyment is going to be tainted. Way to make a dog stained rug for me Hal Erikson.
