A scientist builds a Matter-Duplication machine capable of duplicating human beings. He duplicates the woman he loves but who is in love with another man, only to have the duplicate, too, fall in love with that other man. This is a low-budget film and suffers from it; there appear to be no prints now in circulation. [JB]
