I have been in Dr. Edwardes
office for 5 years...

and the man who spoke to me
is not Dr. Edwardes.

He let me have my vacation
when he left on his...

I was very worried when I didn't
hear from him last week.

Then I thought he might've just come
here without reopening his office...

-That's why I telephoned.
-Show them the picture.

-That's a different man.
-He was taking a chance.

Somebody might've known
what Edwardes looked like.

-You never saw the real Edwardes?
-No, I never met him.

But I felt something was wrong
from the moment our man appeared.

He didn't impress me
as a scientist...

and last night when he collapsed,
I became actually alarmed.

What do you think made him
break down last night?

It's obvious now, Garmes.
Our impostor, I'm almost certain,
is an amnesia case.

Garmes brought him back to reality
for an instant...

Being unable to face the truth,
he collapsed.

-Do you think he killed Edwardes?
-There's no question of it...

He killed Edwardes and took his place
in order to conceal his crime...

by pretending the victim
was still alive.
