    Hi guys, can anyone remember the name of this film, I saw it years ago but cant remember the name....

    Briefly I remember a guy being kidnapped and taken to some kind of installation...

    He escapes and his friends/accomplices get him to recall the sounds of the roads etc and they work out where he was taken?

    Does this ring a bell for anyone?

    It's that one with Rock Hudson. I'll just look it up. Hang on.

    Blindfold, 1965: does this summary ring a bell?

    " SYNOPSIS: In this offbeat mixture of espionage and slapstick comedy, Arthur Vincenti (Alejandro Rey) is a scientist working on secret military projects for the United States government. Vincenti is becoming increasingly unstable as he works in solitude in a backwater swamp; his superiors fear that he might be going mad, so they arrange for a respected psychiatrist from New York, Dr. Bartholomew Snow (Rock Hudson), to meet with him on a regular basis. However, in order to keep Vincenti's whereabouts a secret, Snow is blindfolded before he's driven to his meetings with the scientist. When a group of enemy agents kidnaps Vincenti, Snow could be the only one who can help him; however, he can't track down his patient without wearing the blindfold. Prominent in the supporting cast are Claudia Cardinale, Jack Warden, and Guy Stockwell. "

    See, it's quite helpful if you give that sort of information at the start. Is it a British film?

    It's a plot device that's bee used in British films (and tv) where somebody is blindfolded but I think this is an American film.

    Sounds Like SNEAKERS with Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd and Ben Kingsley among others. Though it must be an episode plot in almost every TV series ever made.
