Voice in the Mirror is a 1958 American CinemaScope film noir drama film directed by Harry Keller and starring Richard Egan, Julie London and Walter Matthau.

It was also known as How Lonely the Night and This Day Alone.[1]


After sinking into the depths of drunken despair due to the death of his daughter, a man is warned by his doctor that he is on the brink of terminal mental illness. Struck by a fellow alcoholic's suggestion that perhaps he should try faith, he begins saving not only himself but others, eventually creating Alcoholics Anonymous.
