Reincarnation of Peter Proud embodies all the thrills of Max Ehrlich’s bestseller, plus an oustandingly rich performance from Margot Kidder. Only weakness still is story’s sudden and unsatisfactory ending.

Michael Sarrazin from the start almost, realizes that some unknown person is within him. Tracing scenes from his dreams, he ventures to small Massachusetts town where Kidder had murdered philandering husband, briefly but ably played by Stephano.

Sarrazin is best in contending with the semi incestuous love affair that develops between him and Jennifer O’Neill. Her best moments, too, come in the clinches that do-don’t take place between two obviously attracted, and otherwise eligible, young lovers.

    Take a look at the photo above.
