Bill and Robin, helped by their childhood friend, Lena, develop a “reproducer” which can exactly duplicate any object. Bill, crushed when Lena marries Robin, convinces her to allow him to duplicate her, so that he may have a copy of her for himself. The experiment, at first deemed a success, seems to have worked only too well as the duplicate, Helen, is such an exact copy that she also loves Robin, not Bill. Bill hopes to rectify the situation with another radical experiment.
The film dealt with the moral and scientific themes (not to mention “mad lab” scenes) that were soon to put Hammer Films on the map with the same director’s “The Curse of Frankenstein” (1957).
Four Sided Triangle has most in common with Fisher’s “Frankenstein Created Woman” (1967).
James Hayter (Dr. Harvey) and Stephen Murray (Bill) died only four days apart: on March 27, 1983 and March 31, 1983 respectively.
