Ned Merrill finds himself in suburban Connecticut, in a plush neighborhood, and in swim trunks. Where he has been we don't know, but Ned is determined to swim home using the 10 swimming pools in the yards of his 10 neighbors. As he does so, we meet the neighbors and they all contribute to the mystery of Ned, who his really is and what happened to him. We learn that there have been some big changes in Ned's life, and that he is in a kind of time warp. Was his institutionalized? Did he have amnesia? This film was made in 1968 and it has all the flavor of that era in bright, jarring technicolor. It is a strange film to say the least, and Burt Lancaster brings this character to life in a way that will stick with you and keep you wondering.
