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.Written by

Tedious film version of Robert F. Temple's underdeveloped novel.
Scientists Bill and Robin invent a machine that can duplicate matter. Scientists both love Lena. Lena loves and marries Robin. Bill still loves Lena, so he creates a duplicate of her and calls her Helen. Problem is since Helen is an exact duplicate of Lena, so much that she also loves Robin. Tragedy ensues.
FOUR SIDED TRIANGLE has a clever premise, but little else. The film is based on the novel of the same name by noted science fiction author Robert F. Temple, but I have it on good authority that the novel was not one of Temple's better works. Hence the film was handicapped to begin with.
American actress Barbara Payton was given a big build up when she first came to Hollywood, but she soon slipped down to making minor pictures like this. FOUR SIDED TRIANGLE is one a few films she made in England around this time. She is only adequate here, and it is easy to why she never became a major actress. Today she is probably best remembered for her scandalous personal life, which resulted in a lot of ink for the tabloids.
