Description by OLDIES.com:

A railroad crossing. A stranded car. A beautiful blonde - unconscious. Moody scientist Jim Grayam (Jeff Hunter) rescues the lovely Lorrie (Anne Francis), only to learn that she's his boss' wife! She wants out of the marriage, but her cruel, controlling husband Cort (Dana Andrews) won't let her go. After Grayam and Lorrie embark on a torrid affair, he hatches the perfect plan: kill Cort while faking insanity to avoid a murder rap! Grayam's convincing portrayal makes everyone believe he's gone mad: the judge, the psychiatrists, and eventually even himself. In this edgy psychological thriller directed by veteran character actor and thriller specialist William Conrad (My Blood Runs Cold, Two on a Guillotine), there's method to one's madness. And you'd be crazy to miss it.

Product Description:

BRAINSTORM is a somewhat contrived but still well done and frightening thriller written and well-directed by actor William Conrad. Jim Grayam (Jeffrey Hunter) is a young scientist who saves Lorrie Benson (Anne Francis) from committing suicide. They fall in love, but Lorrie's husband Cort Benson (Dana Andrews), who had driven her to the brink of suicide before, discovers that Jim has had a history of mental instability and fabricates obscene phone calls and other actions to create the impression that Jim is unstable. The pair decide to murder Cort, using insanity as a defense. The film has a series of interesting plot twists and a plausible ending, and the performances are generally excellent with Conrad's direction maintaining a good pace and an excellent visual style aided by a good, simple musical score by George Duning.
