A Stolen Life


(out of 5)

What’s better than watching  in a movie? Watching two Bette Davises in a movie! She plays twin sisters who are both in love with the same man () until the ‘good’ twin dies in a boating accident and the ‘bad’ twin takes her place and marries the unsuspecting Ford. The film is an average soap opera, but one worth watching just for the well-accomplished feat of putting Davis on screen twice at the same time; a scene that has one twin lighting the others’ cigarette reveals state-of-the-art visual effects that are hard to detect even today. Davis would once again double up in the sixties for the thriller Dead Ringer.
