The advice to follow one’s dreams is not always well given. Take the put-upon protagonist of The Reincarnation of Peter Proud (1975). The bedeviled bed-tosser is plagued by a series of nightmares so vivid he can’t be sure they are not memories. The night visions make him relive again and again a grisly murder from many years past. After a prominent sleep researcher fails to shed any light on the troubling sleepy-time entertainment, our Peter Proud hero loads his blonde, Playboy-quality girlfriend in his car and drives off in search of the town depicted in his dreams. Maybe he should have stayed home and conspired with the girlfriend to stay awake all night.
